[Solved] Checklists yield 0 records
We have been testing apostrophes, etc. but I have discovered I have a bigger problem. I can't import anything now. The file will download, but BD always says 0 records imported. Even with a checklist that does not have comments. I will send one to you.
Got the download David. Thanks.
It imports fine for me. So, let's schedule some time tomorrow for me to get onto your computer and have a look.
Please send me email and we will figure this out.
Strangely, it is working today. I was able to download and import all of the "real" files that I have not been able to do for the last few days. I don't know what changed. These are files that do not have ' or " in the comments.
Interesting David. Thanks for the update.
Let's leave this closed. But if it occurs again, please post back here.
I think BD gets confused after it has an import error. As you know, I tested the error today. And then when I come back into BD tonight it says it looks like the last import was interrupted or something (I don't remember the working). And do I want to start where I left off or from the start. I have always said the start. And then it gives me 0 records.
But then I delete that file. Re-upload it. Re import, and still the problem (I think.)
But it helped to close BD and then re-download. After that, I had success.
Ok - so all is good now? No repeatable issues?
The key above was to simply delete the bad downloaded Outing, and re-submit from BD Mobile.
I have not noticed any problems lately.
