How can I import a CSV file in Records?

Last Modified: January 16, 2017

In order to import your CSV file correctly you need to follow:

  1. Create an empty database via the menu File -> New -> Database (skip this step if you want to append your CSV file into an existing database)
  2. Select the template "Blank" from the list
  3. Select from the menu File -> Import From -> CSV
  4. Select the CSV file you want to open and import
  5. From the CSV import dialog expand the Advanced Options
  6. Select the Text Encoding and the Column Delimiter used by the original app when exported the data into the CSV file format, both configurations are required to import correctly the CSV data

A properly configured CSV import dialog looks like:
