Data is normally imported from spreadsheets.

Currently these need to be converted to CSV format, however there is now support for building .xls[x] templates to wrap around the CSV:


  • Data needs putting into the correct columns
  • Fields should be wrapped with "" quotes to prevent issues
  • There should be no line-breaks in text fields (see [w] for help with this)
  • Date formats need to be correct: ISO8601
  • If the file is very large, then it can be better to split into multiple files to avoid memory exhaustion (see for help with this)

Files & Stylesheets can be loaded from alternate sources, such as:


Alternately these can be done using CLI scripts:
