    Hi, I need to bulk load 400-500 various companies and their basic info. Is there a way to bulk load and import in using an excel file? anyone know? It would make things a lot easier than manually inputting it.

    Thanks in advance!

    There isn't a way I know of. You may need to check for an import plugin. Perhaps an expert has one to import from CSV file.

    Thanks Donna, I'll look for one as it can make things a lot easier time wise if it works correctly.

    I know of 3 companies that make this. Ipragmatech. Social Apps Tech. And Social Networking Solutions. Not sure if they're compatible with V5 though. The plugin you're looking for is import or export by CSV. It targets members. I'm not sure if you're looking for one that can do posts or not.

    If all else fails, you can manually import and export directly into your MSQL database. But that's more of a complicated technical procedure.
