Importing CSV files

Many spreadsheet or database programs can save their files in Comma Separated form (.csv). Each row of the spreadsheet becomes a line in a CSV file, with the cells separated by commas. (See your program's help for how to save a file as a .csv file.) You can import these files into TreePad by choosing File > Import > Into Tree.

When TreePad imports a CSV file, it treats it like this:

  • The file name becomes a child node of the originally selected node.
  • The entries in the first field of each line (the first column of the spreadsheet) become nodes that are children of the file node.
  • All other fields on a line become part of the article belonging to the node named for the first field. Each comma in the CSV file starts a new line in the TreePad article.
