Hello everyone,
I have a simple question for you but not for me.
I want to import and excel file to Quantrix. When I select the default options to set it up and when I import I get an error message that says there is a conflict with the row.row category and cannot import type of message.

What I want to do is import an excel version of an income statement from Simply Accounting so that the first column is used for the row description but what I get is the column of the matrix that would be the row description says Row1, Row2 etc. and the income statement descriptions are in the first column of the matrix. Can anyone tell me what I have to do to import the csv file so that the text descriptions are where they should be as the category names in the matrix?
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.



I attached a small example .csv file and .model file that demonstrates a DataLink of which I think you are trying to do.

If you download both to your desktop, open the model file then while focused on the ‘Data Matrix’ choose Data > DataLink > Edit DataLink you can walk through the wizard screens to see how it is set up.
