Topic:   CSV Import - Last Used Columns

Any chance there's a way for CSV importing to remember last used column header?
e.g. I export a given format from Altium, almost rarely changing column order. If MiniMRP retained the last selected column header this would be really useful. Especially when finding errors in part numbers. I find I have to stop miniMRP importing, go back, make edits in the CSV then restart the process.

Thanks. This has gone in to the 'suggestion box'

I support this request, or else allowing a default template for column ordering that automatically populates the Column # fields on import. It is very time consuming to set the list boxes every time.

I agree that it is time consuming to select the columns but I would suggest that it is also very (very) dangerous. I I or somebody else picked the wrong CSV by mistake and hit the import button that could screw up the inventory big time. You'd need to check everything twice before hitting the mport button and in that time you could have selected the columns anyway.

So I'm voting against this.

Maybe the compromise is to have a "save the settings" option and then do a sample/example display of how the columns line up prior to hitting "import". That way you don't need to reselect each column and you have a quick sanity check.
