Q. I can't get my file to upload! What should I try? 

A. Please be sure to double check the following items: 

  • Make sure all details in the CSV file match your existing vineyards, blocks and varieties. Each line item must match to an existing, unique vineyard/block/variety/clone (or no clone) combination within InnoVint.
  • Be sure you are uploading a .csv file
