    int dataerror = 0;
    try {
        if (File.Exists(filePath))

            // Read column headers from file
            CsvReader csv = new CsvReader(File.OpenText(filePath));

            csv.ReadHeader();

            List<string> headers = csv.Context.HeaderRecord.ToList();

            // Prepares the code name (class name) of the custom table to which the data record will be added
            string customTableClassName = "AT.People";

            // Gets the custom table
            DataClassInfo customTable = DataClassInfoProvider.GetDataClassInfo(customTableClassName);

                CustomTableItem newCustomTableItem = CustomTableItem.New(customTableClassName);

Try to do exactly the same thing but manually: go to admin interface of your custom table and try to add a record with empty email only. See if this works. Most likely you have some constraints on your table.

Did you try to debug and see where it stops?

As I currently don't see anything filling the filePath. Is there any result being returned in the tasks module? Or any error?
