About Import Wizard

Import Wizard enables you to easily import text based report files into MS-Access, MS-Excel, MySQL, SQL-Server, MSDE, Oracle, Interbase, Firebird, ODBC databases, etc. The software goes beyond the standard text import functionality by allowing imports with multiple lines per record and importing headers. The software will prove to be very useful to import information from mainframe, non-Windows based, or secured systems. The imported information can be manipulated as a table in the database into which it was imported.

How does it work? Ninety-nine percent of computer systems have a provision to print reports to a printer spool file instead of printing directly to a printer. Import Wizard uses these printer spool files to create tables. It accomplishes this by using an import model. With the included wizard it is possible to define these models within minutes.

This software will save you a lot of time and headaches trying to figure out a way to transfer data between systems. Import Wizard is available as an add-in for Access and Excel, and as a standalone application.

Import Wizard runs on 64bit and 32bit Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP, 2003 Server, 2000 operating systems.
