Importing Dates programmatically RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an application which imports data into our CRM deployment from a series of CSV files extracted from an other SQL database.  This has worked fine until I added a new csv file that includes a date in the import string.  When I try importing programmatically that import fails, but if I use the import wizard on the same file it imports ok.  If I remove the date from the csv the file imports ok programmatically, so I have clearly identified the problem.  By default the dates are formatted dd/mm/yyyy, however I have tried mm/dd/yyyy and yyyy-mm-dd:T00:00:00 as well.  The date is " delimited in my file.

    Am I missing a trick somewhere?  Any help would be appreciated.
