Area/Room Import



This file allows the import of Areas or Rooms from a standard Comma Delimited file into the RMS system.


You must be able to provide a CSV file in the format as indicated below. It may be necessary to seek technical advice in order to create your file in the format that RMS requires.


Sample File - areas.csv

Important InformationEdit section

  • Areas can only be imported after Categories have been imported or manually configured in RMS.
  • The file to be imported must be in a comma delimited CSV format (Field Delimiter).
  • If a data field within this file contain commas, it should be surrounded with "double quotes" (Text Delimiter).
  • Microsoft Excel is able to save using a CSV format that should match these requirements.
  • RMS is able to determine whether the first record is a header record or not, thus it is not necessary to strip the header record (field names) prior to the import
