Import Catalog metadata from a CSV file from the Desktop

When I try to upload a CSV file from the desktop that just contains column names and no data, the catalog cannot display the column names because it seems to think the file empty. The workaround is to add a few rows of "data" to the file to make it large enough to be displayed. This is necessary to enable me to catalog data sources that I can't connect to.

    There are times when we have CSV files without headers. It would be nice to be able to capture meta data separately
