The File Import dialog is used to enter the required connection information to a data source that you are attempting to import into your data dictionary.

 

Connection

Enter or paste a valid connection string to use to connect to your data source. Press the ellipsis button to call the Microsoft Data Link interface, which is used to construct a valid connection string for you.

 

User ID

If your data source requires a User ID to connect, enter it here, or select a previously used User ID from the drop list provided.

 

Password

If your data source requires a valid password to connect, enter it here, or select a previously used Password from the drop list provided.

 

Include/Exclude System Files

Check the appropriate radio button to include or exclude all system files associated with the data source. Normally, system files are administrative in nature and should be excluded from your import.

 

Select Table to Import

With a single table import, you will be presented with a list box of valid import tables to choose from. Highlight the table you wish to import, and press the Finish button to complete the import process
