Importing Data

Importing Data

Import data option can be enabled by setting import to true in set_actions, as mentioned below:

$g->set_actions(array(  
                        "add"=>true,
                        "edit"=>true,
                        "delete"=>true,
                        "import"=>true,
                        "search" => "advance"
                    ) 
                );

Step1: Select File / Copy-Paste data from Excel

By default new rows are appended. If you want to show append or replace option on Step2, you can set:

$opt["import"]["allowreplace"] = true;
$g->set_options($opt);

If you wish to remove certain database fields in import mapping, e.g.

$opt["import"]["hidefields"] = array("client_id");
$g->set_options($opt);
