If you get any errors such as shown below,

The error is due to data in your csv file that was improperly exported from FirstClass.  The data is not matching up to the columns in the csv file. Open up the csv file using MS-Excel and locate any data that does not match up, you will have to clear out any invalid data, save the csv file, and then retry.

**Important Note***

While this import method works. You will want to check each entry in your calendar.
