CRM 2011 - Hey how much data you got there?

CRM 2011 - Hey how much data you got there?

One of the most common issues with the CRM 2011 data import wizard is with file size, here is the golden rule:

Your CSV files must be less then 8MB unzipped and you can zip up many CSV's files into 1 zip file, that zip file must be less then 32MB.

When you upload a zip file, CRM 2011 unzips it on the server, and processes the files individually, since CRM can only process 8MB files if they are over 8MB once unzipped they will still fail.
