The file could not be uploaded for Specialists: The project does not exist: ImportService_

I have created an entity with following fields:

Specialist (Entity Name)

  1. Name
  2. Primary Name
  3. Surname

I do have some data related to the above entity in a excel file.


when i try to import the data from the excel file to the entity i am getting the below error:

"The file could not be uploaded for Specialists: The project does not exist: ImportService_2018_05_14T09_53_08_040Z."




please advise,

This will work if the value in the look up field in excel has the "right" primary ID (not primary name!) from the related entity, something you will not be able to achieve easily, so for instance you may copy the ID from the All Fields view.


In any case, the import technology for related fields is not matured yet, so it will be a headache until then. for me, i do it this way:


I add a new temprary column, of text datatype, in which i import the related field, and then, record by record i look up the right related record from the related entity.


lot of pai especially without Excel Add In ready, yet!
