Why does the .csv import import 'Original Estimate' incorrectly?

HI

The .csv import guide (https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Importing+Data+from+CSV) says that Original Estimate should be imported as seconds. I had a spread sheet with this estimate in days so I converted to seconds (<no. of days> * 86400). My .csv looks something like:

Summary,Original Estimate
Project Managment Phase 1,432000

This resulted in an Original Estimate of 3w. I have tried multiple times and can't get it right.

Thanks,

Stephen

Have you taken the 1d = 8h into account?

I didn't. This has fixed it. Thank you.
