Dataport - Retention Schedules

Jump to solution

Hi All, I'm trying to use Dataport to import a number of new retention schedules. We are currently using Version 8.3. I keep encountering this error message when i run the import:

Object reference not set to an instance of an object. 

If anyone has any expertise in this area I would greatly appreciate any assistance. I have attached the spreadsheet i was using. I saved this as a Unicode text file to run the import. 

many thanks

Janine

Hi again Shelley - Thanks for your assistance however i seem to have resolved this one. 

 

I exported some existing schedules in TRIM and use this as the basis for the new schedules. It appears that i was missing a few columns. Once i populated all the columns the import ran with no problems. 

Thanks Again
