Sets default import options and thus enables you to run Import Manager without the need to redefine the settings that determine how Import Manager handles the source data.

Default database import link XML file — Displays the default link XML file after clicking and selecting the required file.

Default import log file — Displays the default import log file after clicking and selecting the required file.

Default import mode

Update options — Enables you to select the default mode for updating the target properties.  The options are:

  • Update all target properties — Updates all the target properties by overwriting the values in the target properties with the source values and also by writing data in empty target properties.

  • Update only target properties without values — Updates only those target properties that do not contain any values.


Do not insert new records — Overwrites the existing target data according to the key selections in the Data Link Wizard without inserting new source records.

Create and calculate related data for imported properties — Creates appropriate items and calculates specific values in the target database when the software imports an item that triggers the creation of other items and calculates relevant properties.

We strongly recommend that you select this option to ensure the integrity of the imported data.
