Hi,
I have a file to import to Notes. I have created a form with 10 fields (the excel file has 10 columns) and a view with 10 columns that display the 10 fields. When i am on the view and select import structured file, i select the form i want to use and click OK, it says after few seconds "Incorrect field length in the document" and stops.

Do you know how to do it?

Thanks,
Koray.

With the 5.09 version it does not freeze after all, after few minutes it says the same thing as the version 4.6. It tries to put all the excel file in one document and probably in one field that's why it displays this error but i fuckn' don't know why!!

Thats a bug with EE if you refresh the page it will repost your comment.  You should use the reload question option on top of the screen.

You could write a .col file for proper importing of comma delimitted files.  For information on COL files search on the index of help on COL.  Its easy and more efficient.

Come on Koray.. dont get tensed.  Afterall this is what we get paid for right ?  Take it easy and lets work with Fun okay ?
