What are you using to export to csv? Astro doesnt have a built in csv
exporter. Are you using the SQL export plugin? I dont think that makes
importable csv files, but rather makes csv files suitable for importing
into a database structure.

There arent any other fields supported by the csv importer - just whats
listed. It's a pretty basic importer, primarily designed for importing
data extracted from stellar catalogues.

You may be better off trying the xml exporter & xml importer (download from
nox) which will export all the data in a system. Just be sure to view the
xml file with a text editor. But, if you are trying to add bodies that
way, you may find it difficult to do by hand.

If you detail what changes you are trying to make, someone here may be able
to make a simple script to run that would do the trick. Thats probably the
best solution.
