Importing GEDCOM files

I have had a lot of trouble trying to upload my file. After clicking on 'Import File' nothing happened - at all!. I checked all the obvious and then checked again. I found a very long note attached to one of the records. Once I had deleted the note the whole thing uploaded successfully in seconds. Just thought this might be helpful for anyone else having similar problems.
