Well CSV is pretty universal. I would just import it into your CalendarDateTime table. You may have to map the fields but that's easy. ICS is the standard format for calendars, though, so I'm surprised you're not using that.

Hi Uncle Cheese,
Since it is a csv file, how do I import to the calendarDatetime table? Do I do it as the same procedure as an ICS file where I would drop ICS file into the import folder and then run it? or is it a completely different process?

No, the import function looks for an ICS file. To import a CSV you'll have to write a script to map your fields in the CSV file to those in the CalendarDateTime table.. I usually just use Excel..

I have a project where we are doing the same thing...calendar data is being exported using a csv file. When you say you usually use excel what does that mean? What are you using excel for? I am trying to understand the steps clearly here. I appreciate any help Uncle Cheese.

You import the CSV into Excel, and then in a new column on the right, you build out insert statements, e.g..
INSERT INTO .... FieldName = ' =A1 ', AnotherFieldName = ' =B1 ' etc...
Then you can just copy them all the way down and it will build them out for you and you can just paste them in to your DB admin tool.

The other thing you could try is setting up a ModelAdmin interface for CalendarDateTime and using the Import feature.

Thank you. I will try this out and let you know.

Oh I did not see this post. Would you be able to elaborate on this please? How would the model admin work?
