Direct Mail can import addresses from file that contain fields in a specific order. This is different than CSV or delimited text files. In an ordered file, both records and fields are delimited with a carriage-return. Each record must contain fields in the same order. For example:
Name: Jonathan Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Name: Ryan Email: email@example.com Name: Steven Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Records from these kind of ordered files can be imported by Direct Mail. Here's how:
- Choose Addresses > Import From > Ordered Fields from the menu bar.
- Click Choose and select the file you want to import from.
Add a new row to the Fields table for each field you want to import. For the example above, you would add:
Name: Import as Full Name
Email: Import as Email
- Click Import.
