Importing data

I need some help/advice.  I'm working with Premium 2009 11.0. 

 

I'm trying to import data from a text file and as i work through and finish the import wizard, only the first line of my file is imported.  I'm trying to import approx. 5000 lines. 

 

Any idea of why this is happening and what I can do to fix?

 

Thanks

Re: Importing data

Great, thanks.  Any quick suggestions on how to check settings and what they s/b set as?

Re: Importing data

Thanks Mike. I went into preferences & disabled the dupe settings. Is this the only action I should take to make sure the dupe settings are set appropriately?

Thanks again,

Re: Importing data

If it's not the duplicate settings, the other issue I've had is either the ACT! import process did not read the line breaks correctly, or there's a "bad" character somewhere in the file that's causing the import to fail.  

 

I'd work on the duplicate setting first, if that's not it focus on the line breaks (end-of-line character).  Although I've seen "bad" characters, it's much more rare than the first two.

 

Good luck...
