Work-around for importing a file over 3MB in Business Analyst?

I need to work with a shapefile containing about 5700 records, 9MB in size. Business Analyst has a limitation of 3MB and 1000 records. Truncating the file to 1000 records is not going to work. Is there a way to import this file?

There are a few ways you could potentially import a shapefile of that size into Business Analyst. One option would be to split the shapefile into smaller pieces, each with fewer than 1000 records, and import each piece separately. Another option would be to convert the shapefile to a feature service or hosted feature layer in ArcGIS Online, which can handle larger files, and then bring that layer into Business Analyst.

I hope this helps
