I have an excel spreadsheet that I wish to convert then import into a new termbase. The spreadsheet just has 2 columns, source and target.

The termbase definition that I will be using has a "status" field, one of the options for which is "client approved". When I import the spreadsheet, I want every single item from that spread sheet to have the status "client approved".

What is the best way to do this?

Insert an additional column in the excel file Nov 22, 2011

Dear Wendy,

there may be other solutions, but I would simply insert an additional column in excel called "status" and containing the value "client approved" for each term before converting the excel file.
If you want to add the status to both source and target terms, then you should add said column after the source term column and after the target term column.
