Importing Form Data from a File

SAMS allows users to electronically import data that is collected on the State Aid forms using a pre-defined text file format.

1.Select the Import Form Data submenu item from the Forms main menu located near the top of the screen.

2.Select a Data Area to import the data into (e.g. Official).

3.Click the Browse button to browse your computer and select a file to import.

4.Click the Import button.

The results of the file import process will be displayed at the bottom of the screen.  If at least one item in the file is not valid, then none of the records in the file will be loaded into SAMS.  The file must be corrected and imported again.
