Import database

Post by Rifleman » Wed Jan 30, 2013 12:16 am

I have been using an alternative book organizing software that uses MS Access as it's database. I want to switch to Booknizer and would love to be able to import all of my books directly rather than manually re-entering all 1100 + books. I know you can import from All My Books and Book Collectorz but is there an additional plugin that would allow an import from an Access database? Thanks.

There is no such plugin (the structure of tables and columns in MS Access can be very different). However, you should be able to export your titles from the existing database and add them into Booknizer at once (but you will still need to select from search results).

I am in the same case, bookcat seems a dead project and I am stuck with my database. So, how can I import from this access database .mdb? or from CSV? thanks! I only need that to get your software.

I also have the same problem. I have database in MS Access. It probably can be exported to Excel, but how I can export from Excel to Booknizer?
