Basic import of data

Hello all,

My apologies for another post on data importing.

I have attached my mapping and a data sample. I keep getting the following error: 
  • (2017-02-13 09:07:53) [Error] Could not insert new record for object: Type must be specified
I have also attached a screenshot from Liust and Vocabularies, Object Type.

Very confused,



  • You need to define the object types (under Manage-Lists & Vocabularies-Object Types). Then, in your mapping's Settings you must declare which type the imported records should be.

    Currently, your type setting has the phrase 'objects' - Objects is actually the table you are importing to. Within that, each object record should be of a type (e.g Artifact, Photograph, Document, etc.)
