Field Type

The Field Type list shows the fields that we can import into. When you define an Import format, you will pick from this list of fields and then tell Import where in the source file the field information is located. Import Field Definitions are used by Collect! to determine how to handle the details of your import specifications.

Select File from the top menu bar and then select Import/Export and then Field Definitions to view the complete list of database fields that can be imported into.
