Below is an example of a CSV spreadsheet:
Header – The first row on the import csv file is a header row. There is an example header row available on the webtool; however, the header row can be set as any value. We would advise that you choose a meaningful header row so that you can cross-reference to the specification.
Content of csv – For each field (column), the values must be in line with the requirements set out in the import specification (i.e. must match the ‘Data Type’, ‘Allowed values’ and ‘Rules’ columns).
Blank fields – Some fields are allowed to be blank, and if users try to enter data into these fields it will be incorrect and will show an error. An example of this is shown below: if the patient is an inpatient at the time of stroke, column “S1OnsetInHospital” is a yes (Y) and column “S1ArriveByAmbulance” should be left blank.
