When I import the attached file (only one record, so I can easily clean up if things go wrong), it puts everything in the wrong fields. Everything auto-maps correctly during setup, but after import nothing is where it belongs. For example, it puts State and Zip Code in First and Last name (respectively).
What am I missing? Thanks!
I downloaded your CSV test file and replicated the issue. I do not know the cause yet… I’ve never seen this before so it’ll take me a little time to figure out why and how to correct. I’ll get back to your asap.
Thanks Steven – glad it’s not just me! My best guess is I confused it by listing multiple fields as home phone? I know you can do that through the GUI when you add them manually, so I assumed it would be OK in the CSV, but maybe that’s what did it?
Thanks for the quick reply, and the really great plugin!
The issue as it turns out is the duplicate columns… The CSV Import does not support mapping multiple columns to the same field. Honestly, never tested that or even considered it. It is interesting that the duplicate columns shifts the data rather than overwriting a duplicate. Not supporting multiple columns of the same type is a limitation of the CSV file format… I suppose I could add a way by appending; 1 ,2, 3 and so on to the various field types but that would really further clutter up the drop down of mappable fields and probably not make the auto mapping work correctly.
