Property Value

The value of this property is a Picklist type.


You can set the Picklist.Value property using one of the ImportDataDelimeter enumeration values. To use this enumeration, you can add the helper code file enums.cs to your project. For more information, see CrmHelpers Classes.

If a field value in the CSV-formatted file contains a field delimiter character, such as comma or tab, or a new line character, you must place the field value between the data delimiter characters. In the following example, the data delimiter characters are used for a field with two commas and a multi-line field with new line characters:

First Name, Last Name, Street Address, "City, State, ZIP Code", "This

is a multi-line description

of the record"

For clarity, you can place any field value between the data delimiter characters.
