Integration of text files

There are two ways to use text files as directories:


a) Integrate existing address data as a formatted text file

Partially, address data are available as a formatted text file, for example, after an export from another application. You can integrate the text files whose data fields are separated by semicolon or tabulator via [PhoneBook > New > New > Folder Linking] in write protected mode.

Hints:

  • If you need writing access as a single user on the address data, the variant b) with following data import is to be used.
  • If you need writing access for several users, a text file is the wrong format. Suitable alternatives are listed under Shared Address Data.

b) construction of a new folder

To create a new folder, choose [PhoneBook > New > New Folder > PhoneBook] and follow the dialog wizard. Afterwards in this folder you can administer your address data or import also existing records. The data are always stored in your local working directory.

Hints:

  • Other users may carry out no writing operations on this folder.
  • In the editor's mode of the data mask you can add new data fields or adapt available ones.
