The 'Automatic' import can be used to import from text and encrypted files created by any of Hansa's export functions. It determines from information contained in the first line of such files what the file contains and thus in which register the information is to be saved.

The function will therefore be used in the event that it is necessary to restore from a back-up. This process is described here. It will also be used to import information to a Company holding the consolidated accounts of several subsidiaries.

A further use will be to import set-up information such as a Chart of Accounts and base register data such as Customers and Suppliers, thus ensuring that the task of accurately entering this information need only be undertaken once.

Finally, the function can also be used to import data exported from other systems, after appropriate formatting. For further details, please contact your local Hansa representative.
