Can't import new data into Leads

Apr 19, 2010 at 2:56 PM

Hi All,

I've used this tool successfully to edit masses of data over the last month. Today I've tried to use it to do the following:

I've got a large number of contacts that I want to move to the leads section, I've exported the contact data and amedned the column headers into the lead attributes. Now I'm trying to re-import this data into the Leads section of my CRM. I've put a new column at the beginning of my .csv file with a title of leadid.

The data loads fine in the tool with everything in the correct column but when I try to import it it kicks out errors for each row. The reason is for the leadid column and states

"Guid should contain 32 digits with 4 dashes (xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx)"

Whats the reason for this? The .pdf packed with the installer says to leave the primary id column blank if you're importing records.

Any help is appreciated.
