No this will not work as the tool does not save unique UUID's for future use. It creates a new one for each snippet during the import process.

Hi folks,

Thanks daplunk for providing all those answers.

I would like to clarify on point 3 that the tool isn't able to create unique UUIDs since they are create internally by RW on first import, and unique UUIDs are required in order to overwrite existing topics.

(For people who don't know UUIDs are simply a long string of characters in a particular syntax which provides a unique identifier for each topic, snippet, tag, etc. inside and between realms.)

There is the "potential" for the tool to read in a full realm instead of only a structure-only file, but I suspect that there will be some difficulty in guaranteeing to match up a row in the CSV/XSLX with the correct topic in the realm's export file. (There would also be other issues associated with having to do a full realm import just to pick up the new information.)

V2.6.1 is out

This simply fixes a bug where, if a cell isn't HTML, then any occurrences of < or > or & are encoded properly in the RWexport file.

Version 2.7 is available

User can now choose which sheet inside an Excel document to be used as the data source. Note that only one sheet from an Excel document can be used in each project (as requested by Janrith in http://forums.wolflair.com/showpost....&postcount=487).

Provide warning about unsaved work when attempting to load a new project, load a new data file, load a new structure file, or choosing a different worksheet in the current excel data set (as reported by Janrith in http://forums.wolflair.com/showpost....&postcount=517).

Ensure that the data mappings are shown when loading a project. (This was just a display bug, the mappings were known behind the scenes.)
