Importing CSV file keeps returning an error

Asked by NMC on 2014-11-15

Hi -

I've successfully installed SchoolTool, set up my school years, and now I'm looking to import our list of students (around 8k). I've followed the format listed: username,firstname,lastname in a UTF-8 csv file. I've decided not to add in passwords, since this is for internal use only.

However, I keep running across this error when trying to import:

Failed to import CSV text
Insufficient data provided.

Then I tried copying and pasting the csv text into the provided text box, but I'm still getting the same error message. BTW, I'm trying to do the import here: domain.com/persons/csvimport.html

Am I missing anything in my csv sheet?

Thanks

Please use the .xls import.

It works! I had to get rid of all those worksheets except for People, because that was way too confusing. But I'm finally getting somewhere now. Thanks.
