How do I upload a file, and what file formats can I use?
TrueNCOA will accept CSV (comma-separated values), with either TAB or COMMA as the delimiter, and Excel (xls) files for upload. These files can be imported one of three ways: Copy/Paste, Drag/Drop, or File Browsing.
- WHAT IS A CSV FILE?
A Comma-Separated Value (CSV) File is a simple file format used to store tabular data, such as a spreadsheet or database. A CSV file, as it's name states, is created by adding commas to separate the data. View a CSV file. CSV files can be created in Excel by saving the table and changing the 'Save as Type' to CSV (Comma Delimited).
- WHAT IS A TAB DELIMITED FILE?
A Tab Delimited File is, also, a simple text format for storing data in a tabular structure, such as a spreadsheet or database. This type of file is created by adding tabs between data fields. View a Tab Delimited file. Tab Delimited files can be created in Excel by saving the table and changing the 'Save as Type' to Text (tab delimited).
- WHAT IS AN EXCEL FILE?
An Excel File is known as the Binary Interchange File Format (BIFF). Data inside all Office Document files are stored in series of fixed-size streams. All the data is contained in records that have headers, which give the record type and length. View an XLS file.
