Uploading lists - too many columns error Follow

Are you uploading an Excel spreadsheet and getting an error message telling you you have too many columns? If so, there is a quick and easy way to fix this.

How to fix

  1. Open your Excel spreadsheet.
  2. Select just the data in the spreadsheet (no extra columns or rows).
  3. Hit Ctrl + C on your keyboard to copy the data.
  4. Open a brand new spreadsheet.
  5. Paste the data into the new spreadsheet.
  6. Save the new spreadsheet as a .csv file.
  7. Re-upload into the system.


This should resolve the issue of the system recognising extra blank columns in the Excel spreadsheet.
