    A tab for the selected list displays.

    • Select a file from the list under the Or select an existing source heading, then select Select.
      If you select an existing source, skip to step 6.
  5. Optionally, within the File Options dialog, configure the following options:
    • Text Encoding: Choose the text encoding, or character set, the import file uses from the list.
    • Column Separators: Select the column separator used in the import file. This can be Tab, Comma, Semicolon, or a separator you enter.
    • Text Delimiter: Choose a character to delimit text values from the dropdown.
    • Decimal Separator: Specify whether decimals are separated by either a Dot or a Comma.
    • Header Row: Select the row that contains the headers for the data.
    • First Data Row: Select the row that contains the first row of data.
    • Set Default File: Choose whether to set the file as a default file or keep it as a private file.
