Now to tidying your columns:

  1. Firstly, you must specify which row, if any, contains the headers for your data and which row contains your first row of data. If you do not have headers then choose 0 for the header and then 1 for the first row of data   
  2. Next you can tidy up your columns. You can only upload two columns of data; A column containing postcode data and a column containing a piece of numeric data. Label these accordingly. If you have other irrelevant columns you can select to ignore them
  3. Once this is complete click Next Step
