Frequently Asked Questions: 

I got an error message when I tried to import my file, what do I do?

There are a few reasons you may get an error message:

  1. Your .csv or .xslx sheet is not formatted correctly. To fix this remove any symbols, tables, or charts from your spreadsheet. 
  2. The table format you see when you open the chart menu should match the file format. For example, with a pie chart you'll have a table with two columns when you open the chart menu, one with text and one with numbers, your table should follow a similar format. 
  3. You have an incorrect file type. Only .csv or .xslx files will be accepted. 
  4. The file is too big. You can import a spreadsheet with up to 1000 rows. Reduce the number of rows in your spreadsheet.
