Jump to: navigation, search


The application allows a set of terms to be imported into a lookup table from a file in the CSV format. The format of this file is quite flexible allowing several different configurations (see definitions and examples below). For that purpose, right click in the lookup table object and select Load Lookup Table (CVS File) in the Lookup Table sub-menu: Resources - Lookup Table-> Load Lookup Table (CVS File).



A graphical interface is launched that allows you to select the file / view information about the first lines and select General Delimiter,Text Delimiter, DefaultValue and column for adding terms and for term classes.
