    Import Profile fails with error "Failed during Parsing record"

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Alma

    Problem Symptoms:
    An Import Profile worked before, but new files fail to load with error : "Failed during Parsing record"

    Import Profiles are setup to expect either an XML files or *.mrc

    To resolve this error:
    * Review the input file's extension (*.xml or *.mrc)
    * Select Alma [F2] > "Configuration Menu" (under: Resource Management, or Acquisition)
    * Select: Import Profiles
    * Find the Import Profile which shows the error
    * Select: Actions > Edit
    * Verify that the "Physical source format" matches the format of the input file ("MARC21 Binary" applies for extensions *.mrc, and "MARC21 XML" is for XML files)
    * Save and run another import
