need to display data from an excel into the ui

Hi everyone,

my current entity structure includes the below sample data . while  trying to push custom data using excel, the data is not getting imported

Process being followed for importing data 

the execel file i am reffering to - 


While importing data from excel there are 2 points which we need to consider : 

1. Name of the column must be same in excel as they are in database entity. OR

Also you need to check datatype.
