This file allows the import of the most recent meter reads from a standard Comma Delimited file into the RMS system.


You must be able to provide a CSV file in the format as indicated below. It may be necessary to seek technical advice in order to create your file in the format that RMS requires.


Sample File - meters.csv

Important Information

  • The name of the file must be meters.csv
  • Microsoft Excel is able to save using a CSV format that should match these requirements.
  • The fields within this file must not contain commas
