Hi GD,

The addin's import routine uses the first few lines of the ASCII file to check whether or not it is a valid export from WinQS. Typically, the opening lines would look something like this:
|*|CODE|11/12/2020|02:21:36|.|2.2.11.0|
|*|Project Description|
COUNTER|ISC|SECTION|BILL|PAGE NO|ITEM NO|DOC REF|PAY REF|DESCRIPTION|UNIT|QUANTITY|RATE|AMOUNT|LABOUR INTENSIVE|WORDING|EDIT DATE
If the ASCII file that you are trying to import does not match this structure, then the import will fail displaying the error message that you received.

Kind regards,
Ian
