CSV import: titles ...
Clear all

[Solved] CSV import: titles are just numbers

I am trying to import a CSV file that I exported from Personal Video Database (since that program is effectively dead). It seems like it has imported successfully, as I see the movies all showing properly on the import screen (see leftmost image on attached file).

However, when I then click the Import button, the titles are all numbers (see rightmost image on attached file).

I don't see those numbers anywhere in my CSV file [Edit: correction, I do have 1914 listed as the year for several Charlie Chaplin films, and "1910" appears in a few other places in the csv], so any ideas what's happening, and how I might correct it?

(Second question: On a related note, I had also exported an XML from PVD but wasn't able to import that at all into Filmotech. Am I correct in assuming that this won't work at all?)

Thanks in advance for any assistance or ideas about this issue!

Thanks! There are still a few fields that I wasn't able to import, but I got all the important ones. 😉
