I think you might have posted the wrong link to show off the tool. :-(

I've exported a structure file and can see the following entry in the tag domain section:

Code:
        <domain domain_id="Domain_22" name="Ethnic Group" abbrev="Ethnic Gro"
            original_uuid="AF009BB6-3E88-BFA3-7DE0-689326546BA9" signature="1904">
            <tag tag_id="Tag_146" name="aaa-test-01" match_priority="Normal"
                original_uuid="6F079BB6-3E88-BFA3-7DE0-689326546BA9" signature="1905"/>
        </domain>
I have a CSV file of ethnicity names (such as "Italian") to append where you see "aaa-test-01". However, I cannot see where to drag that column of names from the left (CSV) side to the right (XML) side of the CSV import tool. I can only find ethnicity group in the "individual" category where it shows up as the tag domain for "ethnicity". But, that view is for import individuals (people), not the tags that define them. If I drag the column to "ethnicity", the import tool wants me to add a name for each individual who will be created (one for each ethnicity row). I've attached a copy of the structure file for review. Any suggestions?

How many ethnicities do you have?

The tool isn't able to add new entries to an existing domain. It's primary purpose is to allow you to quickly create topics and articles from CSV/excel data.

Normally, a user would add additional entries manually to a domain before producing a structure export to be used for the topics that they will be importing.

If you are familiar with XML, then you could update your structure only file to include the additional tags. The minimum for each tag would be.

Quote:
<tag tag_id="Tag_XXX" name="new name">
Where Tag_XXX is unique across the entire file (start from the highest number + 1 already in the file and work upwards).
(Note that you should not include the original_uuid or signature attributes for your new tags.)

I don't know if you can import just a structure only file into an existing realm.

I have over 400 ethnicities, which I might be able to cut down to 100. I'd rather not enter them by hand. Can you import a structure file into a new realm and them import existing content?

When you create a realm, you can provide the structure file to use to create it. You can then create an export file from your old realm, and then import that file into the new realm.

I don't know if you can load a structure file into an existing realm just to add the additional structure elements.

I know it has been done. I don't know if it works reliably. I would suggest planning out your entire structure to the best of your ability so you can do one structure import and then make minor tweaks using the standard tools inside Realm Works.
