Common file import errors and how to fix them

1. Let’s say you’re trying to import a CSV file and you see the following error: “Invalid file format. Please check the file and try again.” This is most likely due to one of two things:

-The CSV file is not formatted correctly. Make sure that it is saved as a .csv file and that all of the data is in proper columns with headings.

-The file is not UTF-8 encoded. This can be checked by opening the CSV file in a text editor like Notepad++ and going to View > Encoding > Convert to UTF-8.

2. Another common error is: “The number of columns in the data does not match the number of columns in the target table.” This means that there are more or fewer columns of data in your CSV file than there are fields in the Sage database table you’re importing into. To fix this, make sure that your CSV file has the same number of columns as the target table, and that each column header matches up with a field in Sage.

3. You may also see this error: “The data in some cells contains characters that cannot be processed by Sage.” This is usually due to special characters like #, $, %, &, *, +, -, /, \, <, >, =, ; , : , ” , ‘ , ` , ^ , { , } , ~ , or | being present in your data. To
