Has anyone imported a text file list to dbetree?

Would a list like the one below work, for example?

Add a few entries on etree, export it to a format you're familiar with, add data to it, import it back to etree.

Add a few entries on etree, export it to a format you're familiar with, add data to it, import it back to etree.

Not so easy if you have 1540 shows to enter.

I exported my partial list from dbetree to csv, it's basically an excel spreadsheet with the csv extension.

I had exported a partial list of 1540 shows from Tapetrader before it went down, and want to import it to dbetree.

I have been waiting for Tapetrader to be repaired, or at least for our lists to be recovered, so I can get my full list which is over 1700 shows.

I will have to experiment by importing a few shows at a time to see how it works, because there are differences. For example, Bryan Adams in dbetree is Adams Bryan in Tapetrader. So I will have to see how things play out when imported. Also, if the dates, quality and media entries show up correctly. I also wonder what might happen if I have a show that is NOT in dbetree's database.
