Importing structured text files
Structured text is ASCII text that is structured in fields that contain values. When importing structured text into a view, you must select a Notes form to accept the data.

To import structured text files

1. In a view, choose File - Import.

2. In the Import dialog box, select "Structured Text" in the "Files by type" list.

3. Select the file's drive and directory and then select the file.

4. Click Import.

5. Select the form you want to use to import the structured text in the "Use Form" section of the "Structured Text Import" dialog box. The field names in the form must correspond to the field names used in the Notes view (for example, name, address, phone number, etc.).

6. Select "Form-feed" to have Notes put a carriage return and line feed at the end of each field, or select "Character code" to have Notes put a character of your choice at the end of each field in the "Inter-Document Delimiter" section.

7. Select "Main Document" or "Response Document" in the "Import as" list according to how you want the text to appear in the view.

8. Select whether to preserve the original line breaks in the file, or to have Notes justify the text in the "For body text" list.

9. If you are using a form in which your fields need to be calculated, select "Calculate fields on form during document import." This option appears if you have formulas in your text.

10. Click OK.
