When trying to import a 300 record set I get the following:
“Every record must include a first and last name or an organization name.”
The file is an ANSI text file using “Field1″;”Field2”; … format
The file uploads and takes me to the mapping screen.
I make the necessary mappings for the 13 fields and then get that error.
A screen cap of the mappings can be seen here: http://i.imgur.com/h5M04bF.jpg
I had 100% Compliance for FName and LName. There were those where the organization was blank.
To be safe I created entries for those blank fields
Got the same result.
Thanks for any guidance.03/13/2013 at 12:52 pm #253954
Open you CSV file in a text editor. Are the fields double quoted?
Like so: “”field_name””
That’s what it looks like from the screen capture. The field names can not be double quoted. Just do a find/replace all double quotes to a single quotes and the import should work fine.03/13/2013 at 10:52 pm #254025LincolnGuest
Thanks for the quick response. There were no double quotes. (There are some fields that are blank and they would show as ;””; The header and a single record are included here.
“MEMBER ID”;”Prefix”;”First Name”;”Middle”;”Last Name”;”Company”;”Address1″;”Address2″;”City”;”State”;”Phone”;”Email”;”URL”
“00003”;”Mr.”;”IRSHAD”;”A”;”AADIL”;””;”1221 E. 700 S.”;””;”Salt Lake City”;”UT”;”(801) 322-2868″;”Not Public”;””
In this record the person has no company and no URL so they both show as “”
Thank you again for the excellent support.03/14/2013 at 8:38 am #254046
Can I get a copy of the CSV?03/19/2013 at 4:50 pm #254600AliGuest
Is there already a solution? I have the same problem. I look forward to supporting! Thank you ;)03/19/2013 at 5:58 pm #254617
I really only see this issue with malformed CSV files, usually the fields are double quoted which messes up the parsing of the CSV file. Can you verify the proper quoting of the file and if it is correct, can I get a copy?03/21/2013 at 2:55 pm #254723AliGuest
Thanks for the quick reply. Now it works – but some areas are still not covered.
Got a Tip?03/22/2013 at 8:53 am #254799
