Nice little plugin, does exactly what it says, quickly with data integrity.

However, I ran into a problem at the begginning, which took a while to troubleshoot.

The plugin was not working at all with my .csv, and the error log was not showing anything. It would fail every time. However, the example csv would work as advertised.

After a lot of playing around I found that when I was saving the .csv out in excel, it was not putting quotes around the entries, and also, must have been putting in some headers in the file or something the plugin didn't like, as if I opened the example file in excel, closed it and tried to import it, it woudlnt work.

If anyone is having issues like this, try these steps;

Open your csv in excel, and format it to make it look like the example csv. Then format all boxes to be text, or add quotes around them manually (I used = "'"&a2&"'").

Save this out as a csv, and open in your text editor of choice.

Open the example in your text editor (I used sublime2), and remove all the dummy entries. Copy and paste your entries into the example file.

Save this and then try and import it. Good luck!
