What does "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" mean on a transaction import error?


After importing transactions into the Avalara Admin Console I check the error file, I got an error message of "Object reference not set to an instance of an object". What does this mean?

Check to ensure that the text falls under the 50 characters limit per cell.

  •     There should be no special characters, including colons, in the text.
  •     After the corrections have been made re-import the file.
  •     Refresh the page to make sure there are no long any error that needs to be fixed.

Note, the exception to the 50 character limit would be column L) for the "Description", which has a character limit of 255.
