I created a csv file from Excel and it delimited ever row of my spreadsheet. Over 1 million rows. I only have 150 records to import but its running thru the entire file (and I understand why). I now know I needed to open the file in notepad and delete the empty records but the import is running thru the entire set. Is there a way to have it stop the import? If I have to let it finish is there a way to cleanly delete the blank records or is the import smart enough to do that on its own?

You can't kill it from the front end, but if you have access to the server terminal, you can kill the job through your server's operating system. You'd have to lookup the OS specific command to kill processes.
