Hi,

And a great job has been done, and yes probably going to ask a silly question, I have a metadata file saved as CSV, and the a data dump store for where all my documents are at present, I can't seem to work out how to load the csv on the main GUI.

I apol in advance for the sheer ignorance of this, But in my defence, am an infrastructure guy, not a great coder.

You do not load the CSV to the UI.

You load a XML configuration file which tells DIFS where the CSV is and how to handle the import.

When you install DIFS you will find some example XML configuration files in the "Examples" sub directory.

DIFS actually uses OleDB to read the CSV file so you may need to install an OleDB driver for CSV or Excel if one is not present on your system. It is perhaps easier to work with Excel in this respect.

Many thanks, I get it now, I presume the csv I would place in the same area as the all the data, or you can specify that in the xml script.stevenson

The csv should have the full path to the document you will see this in the examples
