How To Solve Parse Failed Error when Importing User Data from Excel file in Ingress/TCMS V3
Instead of individually enrolling user ID into the device, note that system administrators can upload all user data (such as UserID, Name, Username, Department) from the Excel files. This is done to reduce processing times as well as to prevent the repeating of steps when enrolling the users. However, they must first ensure that the appropriate excel file templates are used before importing the data into TCMS V3/Ingress Software; otherwise, the system will display the error “Parse Failed”.
Apart from that, the PC Setting can also cause the “Parse Failed” error to occur even though the Excel format is correct. Please refer to the steps below on how to solve this particular error.
There are 2 situations which can caused the “Parse Failed” error to occur:
A. Excel File Format
B. PC Setting
Excel File Format:
A1. Users must first create 1 new Excel file based on the template shown in the software.
Additionally, you can download an example of the Excel file here: https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.fingertec.com/Yusri+Tools/Badge.xlsx
Refer to the screenshot below for more clarification-
A2. In the Excel file, you must insert only the data (i.e. without color or box). Please refer to the example in the screenshot below.
Remark - If you include the data with color or table, it will then cause a “Parse Failed” error to be displayed during the import process.
B1. If the Excel files are already configured based on the given steps, but are still displaying the “Parse Failed” error; the cause might be due to the PC setting.
