This article describes a tool for validating a CSV file which a customer might be putting together for use in a Talis Aspire Digitised Content (TADC) bulk import.
This article is technical in nature.
A bulk import of requests can be done at anytime in TADC, and is performed by the Talis Consulting team. If you are interested in importing lots of requests, please do raise a ticket so that we can discuss this with you.
When you are preparing your bulk import file, you will already have been given the file format specification and detailed instructions by the Talis Consulting team.
We have written a small tool in a language called Python which can be used to check that the CSV file you are preparing meets the requirements of our bulk import tooling. The tool is currently only built for python in a unix like environment (Mac OSX, Linux).
Detailed instructions and an example of the output are given below.
