Some errors that stop imports are very difficult to see and others are
really quite easy. When you try to import IMPORT.ER1* or you import
manually you got some error messages; the most common and frightening
is "@ing at or before line #.." And you LOOK and just don't see
ANYTHING. Well there IS something there that is not correct...and here
is a list and examples of the most common errors. The difference
between l (the LETTER) and 1 (the NUMBER) is slight but MM accepts
only NUMBERS in the quantity column. A backwards slant 12 is
INCORRECT...1/2 is fine. A range of numbers is a NO NO...4-6 eggs
won't do; pick 5... The two digits in the UNIT OF MEASUREMENT column
should include ONLY LETTERS. When in that column, hit F1 for a
complete list of the only acceptable abbreviations. Be sure that all
the units of measure start on the ninth column. (9 spaces from the
left) The ingredient column can be only 39 columns long. Once you get
used to these common errors your eye will pick it up quickly. I hope
this helps... *NOTE: "IMPORT.ER1 is the file that MM creates (when
you choose that option) to copy your flawed recipes. The ones that
download with errors. Sometimes it is difficult to SEE what is wrong
with them. This 'recipe' helps you pick up the common errors. From
