Notes

If you wish to use a header line in your input file, make the first field name ID and the converter will ignore the header line correctly.

If you are using Excel on an Apple Computer, save your CSV input file in 'Windows' format. Otherwise the converter thinks the entire file is one very long line with a lot of fields.

Please run a small batch first to ensure proper operation before converting a large batch.
