1 – At first, start by choosing a name for the import procedure and the model of the entity to be created
2 – Then select the appropriate file extension, and if it contains an header, set “Header” to yes.
2b – if the file is a .CSV, configure the appropriate delimiters and enclosures (character used to end a line)
The field “Type” defines the file format.
It can be “CSV” or “XLS”.
These are the standard formats supported by Deepser.
As you can see in the example file attached below, each row will be treated as a single record to import, each column as single Model Field:
