The wizard built into the Data Import tool will walk you through the steps to Import your Data with each different file type you are able to Import. Prepare your Data file before you attempt to Import it. A few tips of how to look out for in preparing your data includes:

  • leave no spaces between Rows or Columns of data
  • clearly label header fields
  • do any clean up for your data ahead of time(spelling errors, formatting, etc.)

We do caution clients who may not have a fulltime IT professional assisting with  their IT structure or who manages their corporate information simply because sometimes data may contain corrupt files or may not Import as cleanly as originally thought. We recommend you consult with your IT professional or one of ours before you Import your Data into Tradepoint.

Note: Proprietary data files (example: XLS) must be read from their source application (example: Microsoft Excel) in order to be imported into Tradepoint.  This means the computer doing the importing must have the source application installed.
