Hello,

Most likely you have the error because not all columns required for import are there, and checking your file I saw that. Actually you can try to create a few categories and products manually, export them and check the file format you need to have to import correctly.

It is possible to import your categories along with products (create them on-the-fly) or upload them independently from the file you have with no modifications using Store Manager for Magento tool. It more flexible way than using default import method, since the application has no special requirements to import file, so your file is suitable for upload using the application.

In any case, you can try it out, since there is 2-weeks fully-functional free version of the application available -
