I am geting:

Error in parsing exclude file C:/~blah blah path/filename.csv Please check the format of the file.

when I attempt to use Exclude in Device Management.

Exclude file format issue LMS3.2

I am sure Mr. Clarke has a long list of fan following ! I too isn't an exception!

This issue has bugged people since long. When exported file is usually opened with an excel sheet, it usually adds a few more commas which are not required in that file.

Later, LMS is not able to parse it, due to those extra added commas. Just try to export a simple 1 device file and before opening it in an excel sheet, open it in a notepad and open the main file you want to upload.

You'll easily be able to track those unwanted guests. remove them and you should be able to upload the file.

Thank you Vinod!!! I had forgotten about those ticks and all the formatting tricks necessary to interact with the database in 3.2. Been a while for me!!! I have more stupid questions, hope your up, just purchased 4.2 and PI1.2 (sadly just learned of their incompatibility/loss of functionality) cya Kat
