Importing text file



I am trying to update the selling price of some of our items using the export/import method.

I managed to do it successfully on a back up version of our MYOB file. But when I tried to do the same thing in our on-line file I received the error messages below.

There were only a couple of -1015 errors which I can sort out. The 240 errors appear to have worked when I manually check a few of them. So I am not sure what this error message means. 

How do I find out which 4 records were skipped?

Any help will be appreciated.

25 records imported without errors.

329 records imported with warnings.
4 records skipped.

Summary of errors
Error -1015: The ItemName must be specified.
Warning 240: Price Level A, Quantity Break 1 not equal to Base Selling Price; Bases Selling Price substituted.

    Thank you, Genreve, for that article about the import error log.


    I have checked the format of what I am trying to import and will try again.

    Hi Learoy


    Thanks for reaching out. 


    The logs of the import would be able to provide information on which items were skipped. May I get a screenshot of the import log? 


    We are looking forward to your reply.

        Hi Learoy,


        Thanks for responding. 


        In the error log, there is the warning 240 which was recorded still but with a warning for 329 records. There is also an error is -1015 for 4 records that were skipped. In the error log you could scroll down and find those records with the heading -1015, those are the ones that are skipped and could be corrected for the import file to have no issues. 


        Here is a help article Import error log to help you understand the import file.
