Possible Reason :

The header/column name may be not valid (as compared to column name in the system).


Solution :

1) Refer to the excel file and check on the column name, and there are four columns; Item Code, UOM, Description and QTY.


2) For column Item Code, it shouldn’t have space between two words.
