Importing Data from Excel

I'm trying to use the import tool to import an Excel spreadsheet, but I'm getting the attached error.

 

My spreadsheet is about 500,000 records. Can anybody tell me how to resolve the error? Is there a better way to import the data?
 
Thanks

Hi @lalder - thanks for posting. Can you tell me what tool you're using to import your Excel spreadsheet? If you can give me a screen shot and describe the menu path you're using it will help.

 

Thanks,

Clay.

Can you try chunking/staggering - Try 5k records.

If that works, you most likely its not an issue with the type/shape of source data and try going up do 10k chunks and then 20k.

500k at one-shot could be the issue unless there are other issues with source data.

BTW, you should see errors under 'notifications' (left hand pane). You want to report those as well.

For anybody that may be reading this in the future- I neer did find a solution to my issue. I ended up switching to a SQL server instead.
