Hello everybody,

I was provided an extra Termstar dictionary as txt file (formerly an Excel file with two columns), but I can't import it into the project. I´m working with Transit XV Smart. Can someone help me?

Thanks in advance!

I thoght it woud be easy Sep 12, 2008

Hi fathe,

With Transit Satellite and Workstation importing non native file formats is not possible, but I thought importing txt or xls dictionaries woud be easy with Transit Smart.

I figured you should be able to do it by opening a dictionary, and selectioning Options >Database Administrator > Advanced > Import/Export (NB I am transating in English my Italian menu options).

Actually I was thinking of buying it because I thought it could import those and import/export all sorts of formats into projects.

Reading that you needed somebodyelse to convert an xls in txt (and you cannot even import that!) is not very reassuring. Please let us know how di you manage with this.

Best of luck,
