What do you want to be done?  To see if an item is missing is trivial:
just check the length of the splitted line (a list).  But what the right
action in that case is belongs to you; should the user be asked? is
always the same column missing? is it possible to distinguish the
entries without errors from each other so the programm can decide which
column is missing?
