Importing from a text or .csv file

To perform the import, specify a text or .csv file to import data from. Then choose a proper Fields delimiter for that file, the line, from where data is to be imported, and the fields to read data from. Use the data preview to adjust the import parameters. The data will be imported to the currently selected folder in the main window, unless you select the Create new database option. In that case a new database will be created and the data will be imported into that database. When you are finished with the settings, click Done to start the import.

NOTE: It is possible to import data from a text file with predefined field names and folder structure. To find out how the text file need to be formatted, just export to a text file some test database which contains several records and sub-folders with different fields structure. Don't forget to specify to export folder and field names in the export options.
