Importing and Exporting Files

If you have event or address information written in a program other than Calendar Creator and you want to bring that information into Calendar Creator you will need to use the Import feature. Event and address book information in Calendar Creator can also be saved in a format that can be read by other programs using the Export feature.

To import a file:

  1. Using the non-Calendar Creator program, save your event or address information as a comma separated value file (*.csv).
  2. Select Import from the Calendar Creator File menu. Then select the type of file you want to import.
  3. Locate your file, select it, then click OK to begin the importing process.

To export a file:

  1. Select Export from the File menu and select Addresses or Events. Depending on which one you've selected, follow the steps below:

  2. If you select Addresses, the Export Address Book dialog displays. Specify which folder you wish to export to and name the file, then click Save.

If you select Events, the Show Category Selection dialog displays. It has a Hide Categories field on the left (which will initially be blank) and a Show Categories field on the right (which lists all of your event categories). To hide a category, select it from the "Show" list and click the single left arrow in the space between the Hide and Show fields. The selected category will automatically disappear from the Show field and appear in the Hide field. To remove a category from the Hide field (i.e., to include it in an exported file) select it from the Hide field and click the single right arrow in the space between the two fields. The selected category will automatically disappear from the Hide field and appear in the Show field.
