In 2007, Microsoft introduced a new file format for Microsoft Office Excel versions 2007 and higher, known as .xlsx. This file format replaced the existing .xls file format from Microsoft Excel '97.
While our system can currently support contact imports from both file types, we will soon be removing support for the older (.xls) format. In this guide, we'll show you how to export your Excel files in the newer .xlsx file format - so that you can continue to import contacts into our platform.
Importing from .csv, .tsv, .xlsx and .txt files will still be supported.
- When saving your spreadsheet in Microsoft Excel, click the File Type dropdown in the save dialog (as shown).
- Ensure you select the Excel Workbook (*.xlsx) format.
- Save your file.
You can now import your contacts into our platform as normal.
