The checklist format upload does not seem to work

I get the following error.
Missing location name detected in first row. Please double-check that columns 1 and 2 are blank and that all location names are present. Open the file in notepad to look for trailing commas at the end of the row.

I double checked my data and also tried to upload the sample file. I got the same error.

Although it doesn't seem to connect to the error message, I've sometimes found that if I delete (not just clear) columns to the right of my last column of data, and delete rows below the last row of data that it "fixes" this problem.

David,
Thanks for the quick response. I tried your suggestion but it didn't help. I've looked at the file in notepad and there are no extra commas that would be fixed by deleting the last column. Here is the header for my file:

Has anyone done a checklist upload recently. I really don't think it's working.
