The solution for importing a CSV file is to link to it instead of importing it. Linking to it, all the fields are correctly formatted and populated. One problem to watch out for; commas in the data. So I am turning to the semicolon as the answer. I am looking for the web developer to output the csv delimited by semicolons. If that is done there is a solution to the errors and format problems of importing a csv file. Once it is linked, I will then do the updates of the records. The only other step is to establish a set path for the location of the csv file.
