My first app - Importing an XL sheet

Posted by Sw7 on 15-Feb-2016 08:30

Hi Guys, I have built an app taking in questionnaire data - set up the Object and i am trying to import the XL sheet to create the fields in the Object. I have imported the sheet a couple of times - but never seem to get to the screen where i can map the columns in the XL sheet to the fields. What am i missing? If i click Create Fields - it says nothing is mapped (which is correct i haven't mapped it). But there is nothing to map and nothing to click on.

Can you share the XL sheet with sample data to know what is being tried?

Could you please share XL sheet with us?

Could you send the XL sheet as an attachment?

When replying to the post, use Rich text formatting option. Then use "Insert/Edit Media" button from the toolbar to attach the file. We need the actual XL file to identify the problem.
