The data import tool has to be run externally to Club Master.
Ensure that Club Master is not running.
Pull up the start menu, select run and type c:\program files\club2000\import.exe (on 64 bit systems substitute c:\program files (x86)\club2000\import.exe) Click OK and the Import tool will launch.
You will be asked if you wish to clear the existing datafile. Answer 'Yes' to start from scratch.
You will need to establish what additional fields you wish to use and you should enter these and their data type in User Fields (at the bottom left). They will appear at the end of the Club Master field list. Use the first available line of the User Fields in every case.
Then enter your member types ensuring that you spell these exactly as they are stored in your existing data.
Before proceeding click the Save button (Lower right) to store these settings
Use the Drive and Folder selection boxes on the right of the dialogue to find the folder containing your data file and double click it.
The files in the folder will be displayed in the lower display and you should click once on the required data file. The types of file available are:
.csv - comma separated variable
.txt - tab separated variable
Please note that the filename must be in lower case and that the file should not contain commas.
When you click the appropriate file your field headings will be shown in the list next to the Club Master field list.
Now link your fields to the Club Master fields by clicking on a field in the Club Master list then click on the appropriate field from your list and either click the Link button or click the right hand chevron button the link will now appear in the linked fields list.
If you incorrectly link two fields use the left hand chevron button to remove the link.
If you would like to Autonumber your members records tick the AutoNumber box.
If you would like to set all members to a new renewal date enter this date in New Renewal
When all settings are complete click the Import button. The number of records imported will be shown in the Stats area of the form.
Click Close to finish.
You may rerun this routine if you wish. The Club Master members file will be overwritten.
