  • This entry from the SDK should be of interest

  • Hi,

     

    Additionaly to what Joe pointed you to, you can use a CSV parser and write your own code, using CrmService's Create method for each record in the csv file. You will then have to care about data mappings on your own, but it can give you much more flexibility. A simple CSV parser written in C# (I use it) can be found here: http://www.codeproject.com/KB/database/CsvReader.aspx

     

    Kind regards,

    Kuba

  • depending on what you are importing, sdk may be overkill...there is built in importing for certain things, in CSV format.  What are you imporitng?
