If you have added custom columns, the mLIMS import tool will not immediately recognize them (it is impossible for the database to know all of your possible genes, or your custom fields). It is very easy to tell MLIMS what you would like to do with the columns it did not recognize.
In the example below, mLIMS did not recognize the custom column Colony.
1. Locate custom field columns. Note that there is a red exclamation point. Check the Box for custom column.
2. When all columns are verified, continue to the next step.
