Import Reference Data

Return to Introduction  Previous page  Next page

When you import data into Enterprise Architect, the system merges the incoming data with the existing data. If a record already exists it is updated to the new values. If the record does not exist, Enterprise Architect adds a new record. Enterprise Architect never deletes records.

To import data, follow the steps below:

1.Select the Tools | Import Reference Data menu option. The Import Reference data dialog displays.
2.Click on the Select File button and select the filename to import data from. This must be an XML file produced by the Enterprise Architect Data Exporter.
3.If you have entered the name of a valid file, a list of available tables to import displays.
4.Select one or more of the tables to import.
5.Click on the Import button to start the process. A message displays when the import is complete. Generally the process is quite fast.
