READi (Raiser’s Edge Assisted Data Import) is a spreadsheet that is designed to help format existing data for import.
 It was designed to allow clients the ability to create import files of data they have without  to manually build import files and manually completing required fields.

  2. On the READi Instructions tab of the spreadsheet select Create Import Files to create the import files that can then be imported into Raiser's Edge.
  3. The import files are saved to the same folder that contains the READi spreadsheet.
