When I try to upload a table, I get an error message saying IRSA could not recognize this table format. What does that mean?

This usually means that the table you uploaded is in a binary file format, such as .doc, .rtf or .xls.

In order for a table to be read by IRSA's services, it must be in a plain text ASCII file. If you are using Microsoft Word, be aware documents may appear to be in plain text, but can still contain hidden formatting if saved in any file format other than plain text (.txt).

For the best results, create the file in a plain text editor such as vi, emacs, Notepad in Windows, or TextEdit in Mac. If your data is in a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, you can save the file as a .csv file.
