Error Messages in System Administration

When importing new data into System Administration, there are certain validations that will run to make sure that existing data is not adversely affected.

If there are inconsistencies between existing data and the data being imported, an error message will be displayed that will identify the error along with the file location of the data that was rejected. 

Such errors could be caused by duplicate fields in the file that is being imported, or the value you are trying to create already existing in the system. 

Below are some of the most common situations that would lead to an error:
