#258 new enhancement

Rewrite CSV import

Reported by: epruesse Owned by: devel
Priority: major Milestone: wishlist
Component: Import / Export Version: SVN
Keywords: Cc:

Description (last modified by westram)

  • always import all columns (or rows)
  • target field names will be
    • either f1fN
    • or auto-generated from content of column-headers (or row headers)
  • if column-headers get used
    • auto-select first non-empty row as header or
    • specify a specific row
  • define column(s) used to identify species
    (i.e. containing something unique like shortname, acc)
  • optionally use FTS
    • to provide selection, renaming and post-processing of fields
    • does also provide handling for existing fields (needs #814)
    • w/o FTS ⇒ hardcode behavior when target field exists
      (abort with error or overwrite?)
  • store configurations
  • show preview of selectable row (similar to preview in importer)
    • shall auto-select the corresponding species
      ⇒ species-info will show unmodified state (nice for comparing)

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