Import Error

TYPE    -    issue document

When the program encounters an error during the import process, it means that something is wrong with the XLS source file. Even a single cell that contains incorrect data can cause an import error.

Common issues...
  • text in any date column
  • text in any numeric column
  • null data (empty cells)
  • missing required column

The value of zero should be entered as "0", not empty or null.

An easy way to understand the required format and fix import errors is to use the example files located in the DATA directory.

The program leaves it up to the user to massage the source data into the required format for import. It is typical that users will make minor adjustments to the source data.
