Data import via excel in MSCRM 2013 RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi Friends ,

    I am trying to import new Account records into MSCRM 2013 Online.

    For this , when i tried to download a data import template for Accounts from Data management , it gave me an Xml file.

    Can i edit xml so that i see only selected columns to fill?

    Any help is highly appreciated !

  • Sure. You can change the Advanced Find or view query to have only the columns you want before downloading. Remember, when you click "make data available for re-import" option, all required fields will be added to the download. Keeping your file in XML format (as opposed converting it to CSV) makes things super easy when importing - the file will be automatically mapped to the entity and the columns automatically mapped to the correct fields (super helpful if some of your fields have very similar names).
