View with no page selected

The default view of the module.

Beginning from here you have to select a page inside the pagetree you want to import your data to.

Select table and file view

The view for selecting table and file for importing data.

Inside this view you can select your table you want to import to. As actual supported files you can use all listed above file types.

The first checkbox allows you to select if the uploaded file is CP1252 encoded. This is especially useful if you encounter problems with empty fields after the import due to UTF-8 problems.

The second checkbox allows you to delete all records in the selected table on the selected page.

For getting data updated instead of added, you have to define a row with the uid of the corresponding TYPO3 record inside your Excel sheet. If you set one column to uid, the system tries to update the existing dataset.

Use the update feature carefully.

View for the pre imported data

The view of the pre imported data with empty selects

You will get a preview of your data. Now you have to decide, to witch column your data has to be written. With the checkbox in the front you can exclude data from getting imported, this is useful for header lines and empty lines to avoid problems with the TCA import.

View for imported data with opened select

An opened select for selecting the data column

Select for every column to witch column inside the database this column has to be added. If you choose ignore, the column is ignored. Selecting uid will update the dataset with the uid inside this column instead of creating a new one. Updating a dataset won’t take effect on the pid, the data is stored. If no uid is set, a new dataset is created at the current page. This allows to mix up updating records and creating new ones with only one import.

After a successful import you will get a success message and your data is imported.
