FF-Import is a data import plug in. It allows you to upload a CSV file (with comma or tab separated values) to populate a database.

There is some customization required:

  • You need to create the database tables to store your data
  • You need to implement logic to decide where data will be stored in the database
  • Validation and manipulation to check for errors in data entry (i.e. if a field should be a number but there are letters, or if you want to strip out the $ symbol to properly store a number)

If you are interested in the ability to automatically update content on your website, for example product lists, by uploading an MS Excel file, please contact Frank.
