Gravity Forms Mass Import
[resolved] csv import problem (12 posts)

    I have done everything humanly possible to try and get a single line to import as a test. I just can't figure it out so I desperately could use some assistance. I keep getting an error with my header row. All headers come back as invalid thus import fails. I have tried omitting various header row labels to no avail. I can send you my CSV which basically has two lines in it but here they are for brevity:

    ID LABEL TYPE Syntax
    3 "XP (Basic Install)" select "5","4","3","2","1","N/A"

    There already is an ID 3 but I presume this will overwrite.

    Thank you sir and I fully intend to donate if I can get this to work. I have a mass load of form data I need to convert from excel.

    Regards,
    Norm

    uhm, not sure where your problems exist. Send me a screenshot of the table headers that are shown when you first pick the form you want to import into. Then send me your csv file you are attempting to upload. aryanduntley@gmail.com

    You've got double quotes all over the place. That is bound to mess things up. Plus there are 10 entries, you only have 9 fields. Also, the headers must ALL match and be in double quotes also.

    Did you get the returned file in my email?

    Ok...looks like I understand. The records in the form have to already exist. The data from the CSV is only used to input the data into an already existing form. I was expecting it to create a new entry for me and that is why it was failing.

    Right, except that "new entry" is what it does. What you mean by new entry is new form or new tables in a form. An entry is an entry into an existing form. That is what this plugin does, it imports data from a csv file into an existing form and that data will be available in your "entries" section for that form.

    Gravity forms does have an import for creating new forms built in. If you export a form, you will be able to ascertain the xml structure for the forms and import in that same manner.

    That is actually a great idea. it looks like I will have to do both steps to get my data importedinto GF. Step 1, export a sample then expand it as needed with all my table structures, Step 2, then I can use your imported to bring the data over.

    Thanks again for your very -very- quick responses and helping me. :)
