Importing CSV files

Manual says I can do it...but it does not say how and I can't find anything:

The memory specific import/export function supports the CSV format to allow for external editing or production using an existing database program.

Profiles -> import/export profiles  tab

The select only the memories and they will be saved in a comma separated value file.

You can save the entire profile (select all) and the memory CSV will be saved also.

Best,

Sorry I, responded to "export", not "import" but the procedure is similar.

well.... select profiles, export... export everything to your desktop or some place you can find it.. the file will be a csv file... edit away...  you will need a csv file editor.. edit what you want, the go back and select profiles and import...

For .csv "Comma Separated Value" files the only editor you would need is Notepad.

Excel if you have it, "is" the better editing choice.

Any idea why it yells at me and says Invalid File: Unable to find owner FIELD header?

are you editing the exported file?

the first line should look something like this, notice it starts with ,  :

, OWNER, GROUP, FREQ, NAME, MODE, STEP, OFFSET_DIRECTION, REPEATER_OFFSET, TONE_MODE, TONE_VALUE, RF_POWER, RX_FILTER_LOW, RX_FILTER_HIGH,HIGHLIGHT, HIGHLIGHT_COLOR, SQUELCH, SQUELCH_LEVEL, RTTY_MARK, RTTY_SHIFT, DIGL_OFFSET, DIGU_OFFSET

So start the line off with "space" , "space"OWNER, "space" GROUP...... etc...

If you are using excel, A1 is blank, B1 is OWNER, C1 is GROUP, etc...
