Data Import/Export Utility - Power Tools for the Do-It-Yourselfer

>>View Presentation Slides

The data import/export utility lets you perform complex and large-scale tasks through the power and convenience of Excel.   If you’ve read the KnowledgeBase documentation, you may be puzzled by all the requirements and unfamiliar terms.  And what exactly is meant by the warning against making widespread, unintended data changes?  This presentation will address those questions and supplement what you’ve read through practical demonstrations of exports and imports, simple and complex.   

Two types of exports will be shown, illustrating how exported information can be used in other systems for statistical analysis or as an efficient way to review and update existing data.  Another major function of this utility is as a means of importing new data in batches. In our demonstration, we will prepare one record for import and trouble-shoot the errors thrown (yes, there will be some). Once perfected, the resulting file will be a blueprint for the mass import of hundreds of records.  In becoming familiar with the methods by which data moves in and out of your system and the rules and recommendations to observe, you will be ready to import legacy applications, travel registrations, new incoming applications, foreign or home courses, programs and dates, and any number of other kinds of records.

This session is appropriate for beginners and experienced users; the subject is applicable to all types of enrollment.
