Re: [nbos] Importing .csv files

Mike,

My suggestion is to import the .csv file into a new sector then merge the two. When merging sectors it will give you the option to skip duplicates. Be warned however that I had some problems with this - if the duplicates are either not named exactly the same or are not in exactly the same place - they may not be regarded as duplicates. I'm not sure how the logic works.

Dan.

If I import a .csv file into an existing map
which already includes some of the stars in the .csv
file, will there be duplications?





If so, is there any quick way I could either avoid the duplications or eliminate
them after the event?





Cheers,





Mike
