Our software will smartly recognize the format and do the parsing and importing for you.

If your data is stored in CSV (comma separated value) file, just drag that file from your desktop directly into the data grid and that’s it. Again, the software will recognize the format and import all data.

Copy and paste works across all data grids in our software, which means you can copy rows from one timetable and paste them into another one.
