Each CSV file contains records in one of two formats:
Information Items, or Connections. All lines in a CSV file must be of a single
Information Type or Connection Type. You can upload the files in the
"Data" area of the D*ChoC application.
Information Items File Format:
Each line consists of Details for an individual Item separated by commas
and terminated by a “Return’ or “Enter” symbol (internally \n)
Each Detail must be pre-defined in the definition of the
Information Type in the DChoC.
Details may be in any order and not all Details of an Item need be
included, but each record must have the same Details in the same order.
Example: A file of Information Items of Type Book mght look like this:
Book1, Ethics For Villains, A. Moriarty, 2024, 312-1-53-874309-5
Book2, Detecting Villains, S. Holmes, 2025, 312-1-84-603281-4
Connections File Format:
Each line consists of a Connection Type, the Key of an Ancestor Item
and the Key of a Descendant Item separated by commas and terminated by a
“Return’ or “Enter” symbol (internally \n).
Each Connection Type must be pre-defined in the DChoC.
