Batch Import failed immediately

In a Kinterathon, the Batch Entry System under bookkeeping allows you to enter multiple Registration, Donation, or Sponsorship Transactions. There is a key entry interface and a .CSV file import utility. Occasionally, the system gives out an error message immediately after you select to import your file.
When you get the error immediately, please check your data file. Usually there is a column or a cell that is not formatted properly. Here are some of the examples;

*Dates being formatted as numbers or its missing a digit (i.e. 1/1/217 instead of 1/1/2017)
*Commas in one of the cells

Solution:
Simply remove these bad characters or reformatted your file properly.
