[vtigercrm-contributors] Problem importing account information - request for advice

Erik Mikysa
Hi contributors and developers,
I just realized that you all might know how to fix this or at least  
should be aware of the problem.
Thank you,

Hi Philip,

I am testing vTiger to see if I will be able to use it, but I am  
having trouble with a very important feature.  I need to be able to  
import Account information, but I have not been able to do so.  I  
experience the error described below both when I attempt to set up  
the upload on my version of vTiger as well as vTigers demo version.  
Can you please let me know your thoughts?

Thank you,

I installed vTiger today and am trying to upload some account  
information. I have a .csv file that has 18 fields for 403 records.

When I get to "Step 3: Confirm Fields and Import" I run into trouble.  
vTiger shows over 100 database fields (instead of 1Cool. The 19th  
"database field" listed is actually the first field of data for the  
first record, the 20th is the 2nd field, etc. It appears that for  
some reason vTiger isn't recognizing the breaks between the header  
row and the first field, and between fields.

I had saved the file as .csv after working on it in Excel. After  
experiencing this error I opened the file in text editor and saved it  
with a new name, just to see if that would help, but I still got the  

I'd appreciate any help you could provide in successfully completing  
this import.
