It looks like you are confused between csv import and xml import. The errors above are from the xml import plugin. Make sure you import and use the Csv Import to import csv files generated by Excel.

Thank you for the feedback...
But here I'm importing the XLSX only not the XML, please refer the attached screenshot.

your advice will be much appreciated.

If needed, I'm fine with Web-Ex session also, please let me know your thought.

Even though XLSX files are effectively XML format, the structure is not the same as that used by the MantisBT XML Import plugin.

As mentioned by vboctor, you should export your spreadsheet as CSV then use the CSV import plugin (, or if you want to use the XML plugin, then use it also to export the data.
