Imports cannot be performed directly from Access to the Raiser's Edge. To get the data in the appropriate format do the following:
 
     
    • From Access select the table that contains the information that you wish to import to the Raiser's Edge
    • Select File, Save As/Export...
    • Select the option To an External File or Database
    • Select Microsoft Excel 5-7 for the Save As Type and give the file an appropriate name [This will send that table to an Excel (*.xls) file]
    • Open the Excel file that was just created to arrange the columns and rename the column headers to the appropriate format listed in the Raiser's Edge Online Manual
    • Once that is complete select File, Save As...
    • Select CSV (Comma delimited) (*.csv) for the Save As Type and give the file an appropriate name
    • This CSV file is now ready to be imported to the Raiser's Edge
