The Problem

I'm uploading/importing my GL for data ingestion and it has been hanging or making no progress for a long time. It remains stuck in one place like the following for a long time:


Possible solutions

  • Solution #1: There might be an error but the page is not refreshing
    • Step 1: click the Close button at the bottom right of the screen
    • Step 2: if there is an error message on the main page, search the error code in our guide
  • Solution #2: Your GL file is big and needs more time to complete processing
    • If you tried the steps in Solution #1 and do not see an error message on the main page, your GL file probably is still processing.
    • This is likely to be the case if your file is big (e.g., more than 100 MB unzipped, more than 5 million rows, more than 20 columns).
    • You can close the browser window and continue working on other tasks while you wait for the file to finish processing.
