Data Importer - Adding/Merging Records

The Import Setup screen provides options to both Add New records and Merge (update fields in) existing records.

To import records not currently in the Keystroke database, enable the Add New items flag.

To import all records, even if they duplicate records already in the Keystroke database, enable the Don't Merge Existing Items flag.

To merge existing records:
- Disable the Don't Merge Existing Items flag.
- Select a merge field by clicking the Merge By button and selecting a field from the list.
- From the Import Menu, choose the appropriate database and select the Merge option to Import/Merge records from the Import file where the value of the Merge By field matches the value of the same field of a record in the Keystroke database.

For example:
If Merge By is set to Product Code, The Import/Merge function updates fields in records where the value of the Product Code field in the Import File matches the value of the Product Code field of a record in the Keystroke database.
