#258 new enhancement

Rewrite CSV import

Reported by: epruesse Owned by: devel
Priority: major Milestone: wishlist
Component: ARB_NTREE (I/O) Version: SVN
Keywords: Cc:

Description (last modified by westram)

  • optionally interpret column headers
    • if using column headers
      • auto-select first non-empty row as header or
      • specify a specific row
      ⇒ Select columns by name (=content of column-header)
    • if NOT using column headers
      ⇒ Select columns by number
  • allow importing multiple columns at once
  • define column(s) used to identify species (containing e.g. shortname, acc)
  • use ACI to post-process field contents
  • store configurations

It might make sense to have a look at openoffice/excel and design the interface to resemble their CSV import windows.

Additional options:

  • Select action performed if an imported field exists
    • overwrite
    • append
    • skip (keep old value)
    • abort with error
  • add dropdown list to select target field
  • show example (of first rows?)
