Importing

If you already have guest details (for example in an email or organizer address book, spreadsheet or text file) you can import the data directly into PerfectTablePlan, rather than re-typing it.

PerfectTablePlan can import information in 4 major formats:

Excel .xls/.xlsx - Excel's proprietary format.

CSV (Comma Separated Value ) - A text file that can be produced by Excel (select File>Save As and choose .csv as the file type) and many other types of applications. Columns and rows are delimited by commas and carriage returns, respectively. " and , characters are quoted.

Delimited text data - A text file with the user's choice of delimiters (separators). Many applications can produce data in this form. Excel CSV is a special form of delimited text data.

vCard file - vCard files be exported from most applications with address books, including Outlook, Palm Pilot desktop and the Apple Mac Address Book.

As a simpler (but less flexible) alternative to importing you can also use the Quick Add Guests window.
