Editing the Import File

Some guidelines to keep in mind while completing the 1095 import file:

  • Column headings in the import file cannot be changed, as they are used to map the import.
  • Red column headings are required in order to successfully import data.
    • While some columns can be safely deleted without impacting the import process, it is recommended to simply hide unused columns to prevent import errors.
  • Each row is equivalent to one form.
  • Payer information should be repeated on each row.
  • Only the first worksheet/tab in the Excel file will be imported.
    • You do not need to delete any tabs, but you may delete any but the first tab if you like.
  • For checkboxes:
    • Enter a value of True, 1, or X in the cell to check the box.
    • To leave the box blank, enter a value of 0, False, or leave the cell blank.

Fixing Errors on the Excel File
