Re: trouble uploading list...

I don't use the db, but the basic rule of thumb is that you have to EXPORT your data in a format that's compatible with the IMPORT formats of the database.

http://db.etree.org/docs/ talks about formatting data into .CSV tables (comma seperated values).

How etree has set up their tables, or if you'll have flexibility in doing that is something you'll have to research on their site.

Personally, it makes sense to store your data in a program (database or spreadsheet) that allows you to output customized formats, so you can just take certain fields and map their output to the corresponding input fields. Unfortunately, it often requires that you make some huge mistakes before you figure out the right formats in which to store your data .
