Error importing CSV

I am trying to upload a CSV file with a date column and an engagement rate column (this column is in decimal format, e.g. 0.01). I keep getting the following error:

 

"Column name must contain only letters, numbers, and underscores, start with a letter or underscore, and be at most 128 characters long."

 

I've tried changing the date to UTC format - I just can't get this to work at all. I don't know what to do with the engagement rate column (I've removed the % from it). 

 

Anyone else had a similar issue?

What is the column name? It can't have spaces, or any special characters, or punctuation. 

 

(These restrictions come from BiqQuery but I believe we are working to make this less restrictive.)
