Table Data Import
Using this tool, it is possible to import table data (i.e. data organized into columns) into tables in the program, e.g. load, coordinates, etc. The tool can read the following formats:
- a text file separated by delimiters, e.g. commas, semicolumns, tabs, CSV file extension
- a general text file with fixed width of columns, data is organized into columns using spaces or tabs, the most frequent TXT file extension
- Microsoft Office Excel tables (XML Office Open) - the XLSX file extension
- OpenOffice system tables (OpenDocument) - the ODS file extension
The import is organized gradually into three steps, which moreover varies according to the loaded format. At the top of the window, there is a brief help displayed. Analyzing the format and the file content, the program attempts to suggest the best parameters of the transfer. If the user changes some parameters, the program tries to remember these changes and use them appropriately for other files.
