Maxus has recently been providing consultancy and support to a number of new and existing clients which has included importing records into a new or existing textbase from an Excel spreadsheet.

As a result, we have reviewed and updated our October 2007 Maxus tip ‘Importing Excel files into TextWorks’  to ensure that it reflects the current process and developments in Excel as well as TextWorks.

For clients who regularly import records into their textbase/s and would like to save the settings for these imports, you can use the ‘Manage Profiles’ option in TextWorks v14+.   See our tip for information on how to use this feature.
