Bulk Inserting New Users with Apex Dataloader

Hi everyone-

 

I'm trying to bulk upload 23 new user records by using the Apex Dataloader.  I'm not making these users active yet, but I need to create the records so I can eventually activate them one at a time.  All of my fields values in the .CSV file are perfect, but I keep running into issues with the following fields:

 

Time Zone

Locale

Email Encoding

 

When I go to insert the new records, I get an error that states the field name & "bad value for restricted picklist field".

 

Does anybody know the values that I should be using for the New York time zone, with an English (United States) locale, and standard email encoding?  Thanks!!

Can I ask if you recall what field you mapped UserType to for the import? The available Data Loader fields don't have an obvious one for mapping the profile of the user.
