Importing Existing Data

1. IMPORTANT!!! Before you do this, please be sure to assign all your custom data fields (if applicable)


2. Click on the Configuration & Preferences feature from the main application window


3. Click on the Data menu and choose Import Data from Tab-Delimited Text File


4. Your file must be a text file, with all data elements separated by a tab. The best way to do this is to save your data from Excel into a tab-delimited format. You should also have separate files for each cemetery and lot type, as the import process assigns all data in a single import file to just one cemetery and one lot type.


Your data file should contain a single header row.


5. Choose your cemetery and lot type from the drop down boxes at the top of the window


6. Click on the button in the top right corner to select your import file

7. The application will attempt to automatically map the available data columns with the data in your import file, but likely you will need to choose the appropriate data mapping columns within the grid



8. Once you have all your data elements mapped, click on the button in the bottom right corner of the window to begin the import process


9. You will be asked if you want to completely wipe out all the existing data in your database before the new file is imported.


a. If you answer YES, all data is wiped out and only the data from your import file will exist
b. If you answer NO, all data is left intact and your new data file is appended to your existing data

The program will then need to close and you will need to re-open.
