We (my mom) are trying to add student patrons in batches. She made an excel
file following the Koha instructions. She is getting errors. Do you have any
suggestions or possibly do you have a template that you know works that you
can send me. Here are her emails describing what happened:

One attempt, nothing imported. Said something not expected format which
almost certainly means phone numbers or dates. I'm going to have to play
around a little to determine what is hanging it up... perhaps later tonight.

I took it down to only names and the required codes and it still wouldn't
load. The error messages are below. It appears it doesn't like my header
row, which I copied from their instructions. Says it could not be parsed. I
searched on that error message and I appear to be not the only one who has
this problem, and they system does not think that it is a csv, but tab
separated. I'm going to work on it tomorrow on a break and try a couple
other ways to see if I can find a way for it to be a csv file that system
recognizes. xoxo Mom
