Import an Excel file

If the items list is available in Excel, you can also import it into FUTURA Engineering. For the import to be successful, the structure must conform to a defined scheme. In this example (figure), reference no. numbers (column reference no.) are maintained in the Excel template. However, these are not considered during the import, so you can leave the column blank. FUTURA Engineering automatically performs a numbering with the reference no. structure pre-set on the surface.
