The layout below can be used to import Cost Centers - Hierarchical into Core HR.

General Information on Importing

For general information on importing data, refer to the following dedicated article that details how to import a file, supported formats, and other related information.

Import Layout

When creating your import file, you must:

  • Create Column Headers.
  • Match the order of the columns with the table provided below.
  • Match the number of columns with the table provided below.

If columns are added or removed, the import process file will stop and an error message will be shown, resulting in no records processed and an error logged in the import history.

When is a Record Added vs Updated?

If an existing record is found in the key field(s) ([key]) identified below, the Core HR will update that record instead of creating a new record.
