What does import error mean?

I got an import error: Malformed CSV - Unquoted fields do not allow \r or \n (line 1). Please explain. This is during an import that I do often to update our NationBuilder data from our national data set.

The error message you referenced typically means that some of your cells contain line breaks. This error often occurs when their are address fields, as addresses are often pasted in a multi line format.

Please feel free to reach out to [email protected]┬áif you ever aren't able to resolve the error by double checking your cell formatting!
