Setting the import options

When importing a CSV file, you can choose the following options:


Choose file: the name of the file to import is displayed there.

Item delimiter: each item in a CSV file is delimited by a special character (the default being the ,). You can set the delimiter you want to use here.

First row contains the column names: check this option if the first row contains the column names (they will be used for data mapping).
