Format for import of entities

I need to import an entity list to make a report in the DSS GUI, but there is no hint as to what the file format should be ! Excel, csv, txt files are not accepted. What is accepted ?

@BTh,

In a nutshell, the CSV format is the following:

  • Line 1 should contain this string: Company Id
  • All following lines should contain the identifier type as first element, followed by a comma (the separator) and the identifier. A 3rd optional element is the user defined ID. Example file contents:
Company Id
ORG,12286
ORG,16364,ThisIsToshiba
ORG,18228
ORG,100445905
RCP,300017142
ISN,US097023AD79
RIC,CARR.PA
FLI,30002184

For more details and supported identifier types, see page 52 of the DSS 13 user guide.
