I have to work with Transit for a project. I have a small glossary of terms created in DVX that I would like to import into termstar but it keeps crashing or flashing error messages.

I have tried importing it as an excel doc, a CSV and a text file and still can't get it to work.

Any ideas?

Thank you !

More details, please May 25, 2010

This can be due to many thing. Can you be a bit more specific about the error messages you get?

Error Message May 25, 2010

Hi Geneviève


If I import the terminology as an excel document the error message comes up as 'CreateFile_Error' I have successfully imported terms in Excel format that I have made for this project but the Excel file created by DVX does not import. I have tried removing the DVX generated field headings and still get the same result.

Importing it as text (and in Unicode format) results in an 'Invalid field content' message. I have made sure that the field import combination sequence corresponds to the field order of the exported DVX file but when I try to import this into Transit it effectively skips all the entries and displays ' Invalid field content'

If you can shed any light on this I would be very grateful!

Thanks

Sarah

Never encountered this problem May 26, 2010

Hello Sarah,

I never encountered this problem, thus I have no standard solution for it. I am not too busy at the moment, so if you use XV (the same version as me) you could send me a sample of your import files and your import definition, so I could have a closer look at it. I will keep of course your data confidential.
