Introduction to Imports in the System Module

The 'Imports' function provides for the importing of data from tab-delimited text files exported by other Hansa databases or Companies, or from other applications such as spreadsheets. It also imports the encrypted back-up files created by the 'Company Text Backup' and 'Database Text Backup' Export functions. The function is selected using the 'Imports' item on the File menu.

On selecting the 'Imports' function from the File menu, an 'Imports' list window appears. There are two import options in the System module: double-click one to start the import process. An 'Open File' dialogue box will appear, asking you to locate the file to be imported. Click [Open] and the import will begin.
