Hi, I have downloaded the opendata plugin in josm as i need to import spreadsheet data into josm. I am using an excel spreadsheet and would like to know the correct format the table needs to be in so that i can import data from the spread sheet to either a node or a way if at all posible?

At the moment I am only getting a error message reading "No valid coordinates have been found"

Help will be greatly appreciated. Cheers.

First of all, do you have read (and understand) the import guidelines?

If you intend to import data with josm, you have to be sure of what you're doing. Maybe the best solution is to give your data to someone with experience.

Where can we see your file to understand the error?

I don't know excel, but I guess you can convert it to .csv. From a .csv file you can easily create an .osm-file using some existing osm data as a template. For doing so I used awk.

There are also tools to convert .csv to .osm but they didn't match my needs.
