I ran into an interesting error this morning that I thought I would share. I was attempting to import a CSV file called “Area code to Time zone & State List.csv” into a custom entity in CRM 4.0 when I got the following message: “An error has occurred”. As usual, one of those very ‘helpful’ messages from Microsoft that makes it impossible to figure out what the problem really is.
It turns out that the real problem was that the import file had an ‘&’ as part of the filename. Once I change the file name to eliminate the ‘&’, the import ran fine.
