Importing Data from Bacon's
Bringing data into Publicity Assistant from Bacon's involves two basic steps: exporting list from Bacon's and importing that list into Publicity Assistant.
Hint: The easiest way to choose the proper fields is to first remove all the selected fields and then choose the fields in the order in which they will appear in Publicity Assistant. For example, first name, last name, title, callsign/media name, etc. This facilitates the import process.
Importing into Publicity Assistant 2000:
The import feature in located on the tools page of each project. Press the import button. You will be prompted to choose a file to import. Find your file and hit the select button. The following window will appear:
You will notice two columns. The Publicity Assistant fields are in the right-hand column and the imported file fields are in the left-hand column. To import this data, match the fields in the left-hand column (that is the fields you wish to import) with the Publicity Assistant fields in the right-hand column by dragging the buttons to the left up or down, so that first name is next to first name, last name is next to last name, etc. You will need to insert bank fields in order to align fields properly. To do this, drag a blank from the bottom of the column and place it next to a field that is not occupied. When you have all the fields aligned properly. Hit the import button located at the top left corner and the contacts will be added to your project list. These imported contacts can be inserted into the Main Media Data by using the Reverse Send feature.
