Excel file import error

Asked by parvez on 2017-12-10

Dear Sir,


I am using schooltool 2.6 and I have my own school data in excel file with more than 1000 records. I am trying to import XLS or CSV file but its giving error. (User name is not valid user name)

Do I need follow same standard or format which is given in sample data file ?

Can I upload xls or csv file with my own format or Do I need to follow same format which is provided in sample data ?

Before uploading do I need to fill complete file and upload ?

Please provide step by step procedure to upload XLS OR CSV file.

Ubuntu Release - 16.04.3

Excel sheets have to be named and structured like in sample data files.
File can have as little sheets as you want to import.

See documentation at http://book.schooltool.org/spreadsheet.html

Can you help with this problem?
