TOPIC: Excel File for Badging

Excel File for Badging 2 years 7 months ago #5249

Hello- I'm trying to import Excel files in to E8 to be used in the badging function but I keep getting this message..."Parsing replacement data file failed".

I've tried .xlsx, .txt, .csv files and no luck...even though I've done this before with .xlsx files with no problem. Seems like now I can't get around the problem.

Any ideas? I've tried producing a spreadsheet with data columns equal in number to what text lines I need replaced. I've also produced one with equal to ALL text lines in my E8 file

For example...My E8 layout has school/award/presented to/name/sport/year...So I tried on spreadsheet with just award/name/sport (the only three lines that are changing) and I've tried a spreadsheet with all lines where I just kept the non-changing lines consistent all the way down the columns.

So...this is all very frustrating...Used to work...doesn't now.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Sorry for the problems. Would you email me the CDL file plus the Excel file that you are currently working with. My email address is This email address is being protected from spambots.
