Importing a Cable ID set from Excel to LinkWare Live

LinkWare Live lets you import Cable IDs from a spreadsheet.  In the spreadsheet, all of the IDs must be in the first column, with a blank row after the last ID.


Save the file as .csv.


When adding new Cable ID lists, make sure that none of the new Cable IDs are duplicates to any others already configured within the the same project.  Duplicates will cause the import to fail.

This also applies to other Test Configurations within the same project. Check for duplicates already configured in other Test Configuration tabs and remove them from the .csv or .xlsx file, save. and try the import again.


Next, within the Project test configuration (in this case, the Cat 6 568A tab), click the IMPORT CABLE ID button.


  • Enter a name for the Cable ID Set.
  • Click Choose File and browse to the .csv file you saved.
  • Click the green IMPORT button.  


After the import, you will see the ID list and be able to expand it and check that the IDs are correct.



The next time you SYNC the Versiv to your LinkWare Live Organization, the Cable ID list will be transferred with the Project to the tester.
