Default Importing Products from LC 2.2.41 to X-Cart 4.5.1 Gold

I am currently in the process of testing out X-Cart 4.5.1 GOLD before I purchase it to make sure I truly want to switch from my current LC 2.2.41 to X-Cart.

In LC 2.2.41 you have an option to export the product catalog, and in X-Cart 4.5.1 GOLD (I'm currently using the evaluation license) there is an option to import products.

I exported my products from LC 2.2.41 with the 'comma' as the delimiter and tried to import into X-Cart (making sure 'comma' is the delimiter on X-Cart also) and when I import, it says
"The file you are trying to import does not contain any sections."

Am I doing something wrong?

I doubt it LC exports in the same format XC imports so you most likely will have to open up that file and modify it to comply with XC import standards

Thanks I modified it to X-Cart import standards and got it to work! Thanks for the advice

LC wasn't including the labeling for the fields
(e.g.)
[PRODUCT_OPTIONS]
!PRODUCTID;!PRODUCTCODE;!PRODUCT;!CLASSID;!CLASS;! TYPE;!DESCR;!ORDERBY;...etc

This is old - but some of it may still apply: http://forum.x-cart.com/showthread.php?t=34685
