How do I upload records to TrueDeceased for deceased suppression?

Check out our Input File Guide for full details on how to upload your file.

To upload a file, TrueDeceased requires certain data fields. Users should always map to the Input ID field, First Name and Last Name field (or Full Name field).

You must always have a combination of Name information and either Address, Phone, or Email information.

NOTE: First Name and Last Name may be replaced with Full Name.

The recommended fields above are not the only combination of fields you can use; you can use any combination of Name + (Address and/or Phone and/or Email).

TrueDeceased requires a minimum of 100 records.

Records can be uploaded to TrueDeceased one of three ways:  Copy/Paste, Drag/Drop, or File Browsing.

TrueDeceased accepts CSV (comma-separated values), with either TAB or COMMA as the delimiter, and Excel (xls) files for upload.


A Comma-Separated Value (CSV) File is a simple file format used to store tabular data, such as a spreadsheet or database. A CSV file, as it's name states, is created by adding commas to separate the data. View a CSV file. CSV files can be created in Excel by saving the table and changing the 'Save as Type' to CSV (Comma Delimited).


A Tab Delimited File is, also, a simple text format for storing data in a tabular structure, such as a spreadsheet or database. This type of file is created by adding tabs between data fields. View a Tab Delimited file. Tab Delimited files can be created in Excel by saving the table and changing the 'Save as Type' to Text (tab delimited).


An Excel File is known as the Binary Interchange File Format (BIFF). Data inside all Office Document files are stored in series of fixed-size streams. All the data is contained in records that have headers, which give the record type and length.
