Importing-no glory

March 13, 2007

Ok, so of 230 records, 0 imported.  The error messages were about the accession number and date.

  • I’ve gone and put a date in for each record.I don’t get what the problem with the numbers was.  I thought it said it would parse it out with the dot as delimiter.
  • Second try it still didn’t take the dates.  I noticed the error message used “accession no” and “accession date” which is not what the table stated.  I’ve changed the field names to reflect the error message. Still no glory.
  • Third try, the error message uses caps for the field names.  I can’t think what else to try. Still no glory.

Any ideas?  I need your help.  I’ve joined the AT list, perhaps they can help.  But you readers are not off the hook. 🙂


I’m working on importing my old accessions database that I had in MS access into Archivists Toolkit. So far I’ve changed all the old Accession numbers to match my new scheme and changed the the field names to match those on page 56-58 of Chapter 5 user’s manual. Next I’m going to do a query with just the fields that fit and export it as a text-delimited file. I’ll get back to you to let you know how it goes.
