Importing from SplashID 5.3-6.2

You can import data into B-Folders Desktop Edition from a variety of applications. Since each application has its own ideology, data format and data representation, B-Folders endeavors to preserve the semantics of the original data, but not the representation.

IMPORTANT: Importing data into B-Folders from other applications creates a lot of new items. Since syncing hundreds or even thousands of these could be quite slow over a network connection, we recommend syncing imported data over a USB cable – the fastest sync method.

A database should be exported as a CSV file.

Exporting a database as a CSV file

  • Select the File > Export > CSV menu item.
  • In the Export dialog select Export all records and press the OK button.
  • In the Export File dialog:
    - Choose a folder and provide a name for the exported file and press the Save button.

Importing the CSV file into B-Folders

  • Select the File > Import Data menu item.
  • Select SplashID CSV and press the OK button.
  • Select the CSV file and press the Open button.
  • You should see an information dialog and the records will have been imported into an Imported Data folder.
