Help, how to topics > Import easy steps

You can import your inventory records from a text file where fields are delimited/separated by special characters (tab, comma, or another character). This topic explains how to import data from an excel table.

Importing from an excel table:

  1. Add a new row at the top of your table and enter field names that are used in Handy Calibration Manager. The row with field names will simplify the importing procedure. You will not have to define the import mapping.
  2. Save your excel table as a text tab delimited file (using tab as a delimiter is safe option, you don't have tab characters in the table content).

  6. Select import options.
