Import Data from Excel to Dataverse


I am trying to import the excel file data to dataverse, but getting the error "Import failed. Click the link below to download the error details." and gives me 25 errors out of 600+ records. I did map the fields correctly. I have lookup columns, text, choice etc on the table. Can you advise on what could have gone wrong?

Hi @rampprakash,

The excel import did not go through successfully, hence I cannot find the records. Please advise.




Downloaded excel shows the below error:

Hi @Teresa24486 ,


The data looks to be unreadable for these rows in your exported file.  Not sure why this is...  Did you check the source data of these records to see if you have anything that looks weird?   One thing that usually causes failures for me on imports like this is when the record's lookup can't be resolved because there are duplicates in the Dataverse.  Not saying this is the case here but usual condition I have.  


In the user interface for the errors, does it give a reason the record failed?  It will usually say the error in the UI.




Hi @dpoggemann

I do not have duplicates in the lookup, its a list of values, not sure why it is appearing this way on the excel sheet.
