  7. Open the BenefitEnrollment.csv file from the zip file.

  11. Open Insurance Plan Enrollment Details-Enrolling For Dependent.csv from the zip file. This is required if you want to add dependent-specific details for the insurance. Make sure to use the same alphanumeric value for field as it was used in BenefitEnrollment file > id field (A7341 has been used). Also, same numeric value (this field is auto-number field and the value should be unique) for benefitInsurancePlanEnrollmentDetails.externalCode field as it was used in BenefitEnrollment-Insurance Plan Details.csv file (We have used 129162). 
  12. Open BenefitEnrollment-Dependent Nominees.csv for nominating dependents for the insurance. 
  13. If you want to nominate non-dependents, then you can fill up data in the file BenefitEnrollment-Pension Non-Dependent Nominees.csv
  14. Once all the files are saved, open the above files in Notepad / Notepad++ to make sure that leading zeroes are not missing and dates are in correct format. Also, verify that the Percentage amount is saved in number format.

You can revert the change and selcet Excel once the import is done.
