Complete List of NetSuite CSV Import Types and Record Types: Master the Art of NetSuite CSV Imports

Importing data into NetSuite using CSV (Comma Separated Values) files can be a powerful and efficient way to manage your NetSuite data. However, it is important to understand the different import types and record types available. In this article, we will provide a complete list of NetSuite CSV import types and record types, along with their relationships so you are not left scrambling in the dark next time you need to complete an import you haven’t done before.

The Import Type field is the category of import you are performing, while the Record Type field specifies the type of record. The Record Type list is filtered based on the Import Type so you need to get the Import Type right. Not knowing which Import Type to use can therefore slow the whole process down and potentially cause errors.
