Can I use the ACCME Excel template to create an XML file upload?

Last Revised:

No. The Excel template that the ACCME has published for use with the tab-delimited .txt file upload process cannot be used to add activities through an XML file upload in PARS. 

In order to successfully add activities to PARS using the XML file upload, you must structure your data as described in the XML file upload process documentation. Saving the ACCME tab-delimited text template Excel file as XML will not create a file that conforms to the Medical Education Metrics (MEMS) XML standard as required by the PARS upload process.
