Can't import my plant database into VW plant database

Mark Taylor

Recommended Posts

I must be missing something obvious. I have converted my database into an Excel speadsheet (.xls) and then from the VW Plants Database chose File:Import Records:File. In the finder window the Excel file is grayed out and non-selectable. Actually, I can't find a single file of any type that is selectable, even the VW database text files. Any suggestions?

Try the following:

In the Open File window, at the bottom there should be a Show label with a drop down next to it. One of the options is Excel files. Try selecting that and see what happens. If you select Tab-Separated or Comma-Separated that should enable the test files for selection.

Let me know if this works out.
