# Import File Format
The import file may either be a Microsoft Excel file (.xlsx or .xls) or a CSV (Comma Separated Values) file.
The columns in the file are described below:
DIVISION, DATE, TIME, FIELDNAME, TEAM1, TEAM2, PUBLISH, GAMETYPE
DIVISION is the name of the division
DATE is the date of the game in format MM/DD/YY or YYYY-MM-DD
TIME is the time of the game in format HH:MM
FIELDNAME is the name of the field (must match what was created in the Manage Fields section)
TEAM1 is the name of the home team. TEAM1 must be in the division in order for the system to be able to find the team. In the event you want to do a cross-division type of game you may use the team number instead of the name (e.g. 35010). Team numbers can be found by looking at the team registration page.
TEAM2 is the name of the visiting team. TEAM2 must be in the division in order for the system to be able to find the team. In the event you want to do a cross-division type of game you may use the team number instead of the name (e.g. 35010). Team numbers can be found by looking at the team registration page.
PUBLISH is 0 or 1 where 1 signifies to publish the game so it is publicly viewable.
GAMETYPE is pool, semi or final where pool signifies a league/pool game, quarter is a quarterfinal game, semi is semifinal game, final a final game, friendly is a friendly game, and consolation is a consolation game.
Note: PUBLISH and GAMETYPE may optionally be left off and thus will be defaulted to 1 for PUBLISH and pool for GAMETYPE.
