Uploads the XML byte array to the XFRACAS import queue. Returns an Integer that represents the record ID of the byte array.

Remarks: The XML file will be processed at the next scheduled import, or you can choose to process immediately all items in the import queue by using the ProcessXfracasImports method.

For the XML file to be imported successfully, you must have the "Manage Import" admin permission in the XFRACAS entity where you are uploading the file, and the XML file must be in the correct XFRACAS XML format. The XFRACAS 11 Import Business Logic (PDF) document provides a complete description of the XFRACAS format.
