Is there a way to import into a the memebers database?

I have about 1000 new memebers (customers) that I need to import. Here's the deal.

I extended the member object to include several other fields that I'll need to import into also.

Is this even possible? I sure hope I don't have to type in 1000 member records.


7/25/2009 - Figured it out. Simple once you know (make sure you know) the database structure.

Also, have a look at the CSVBulkImporter class - this provides a way of populating the database with values from a CSV file. I've used this successfully in the past without too much fussing around.
