What is the purpose of the "Import Data from CSV" button under Data Import/Export? I know that it is NOT for

  • importing a new point grid (that's under Properties)
  • importing a data base (that works via XML files)

I agree the naming is confusing as the functionalities are different.

So basically in the coming version of Collect Earth the menu items will change name to something like :|

  • Add new records from XML

  • Update existing records with CSV

See the link that Giulio posted for more information of how to update the data already recorded in the database.

Hi Antonia, just today we were discussing about the naming of that feature since it will only update the values that are already present but it won't import new records. If you want to import records into a blank database, you need to import the XML exports.

This other discussion may shed more light.
