Problem loading CSV file using logstash

I am new into Logstash/elasticsearch/kibana

I have created the following logstash config in windows

input {
file {
path => "C:\Users\aperez.SEAPUB\Downloads\logstash-6.0.1\data\avrs_syslog"
start_position => "beginning"
sincedb_path => "NUL"]
}
}
filter {
csv {
separator => ";"
columns => [ "type", "routing" , "sysid", "date", "time" , "jobid" ,
"uexit" , "msgid", "msgtxt" ]
}
}
output {
elasticsearch {
hosts => "http://localhost:5601"
index => "zosindex"
document_type => "mylogs"
}
}

and when I executed via logstah I get the attached errors that I cannot decipher

Any helo would be greatly appreciated

Regards
Alfredo

Like the output says: "Expected one of #, {, } at line 5, colu
mn 23 (byte 150)": there is a typo in your config and it's the ']' in 'sincedb_path => "NUL"]'

Thank Kurt...I am so tired trying to ge this work that I missed this. I am getting another error that I cannot troubleshoot. I think I will try GrayLog something that should be simple is getting so complicated

Here is the log and I really appreciate your help

I guess that's the next error in your config. Port 5601 is the default for Kibana and you want to send them to Elasticsearch which is default to be found on port 9200.
