Re: [gkornbluth] Importing Excel Data to CMSB

I have exported to Excel format but not imported yet. I was looking at Navicat to import to CMSB. You might give it a try. I think you can get a free 30 day fully functional trial version.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you are successful.

Hi Jerry,

Yea, the two options you'd be looking at would be using some external tool to get the data into MySQL, or have a custom program built to import the data.

Also, if possible it's much easier to have excel export a CSV file and then import that, because then the import program doesn't need to know how to read (any one of the multiple versions of) excel.

Hope that helps!
