Import data into related fields

I created tables that are related each other. And now I want to import my data that is in CVS to Ninox, but I cannot import the information when the field is related to another table. 

I need to do this because I already have to much information and I cannot go one by one to create the relation between this two tables

    We would like to understand your enquiry better. Could you please explain your issue a little bit more detailed? At which point you are working? May be you can send us a screen shot or a sample database and a sample import file. That would probably help us give you a better support.

    Thank you for your cooperation. Best, Jörg

    Dear Jörg thanks for your interest in my question. Let me explain you with an example. 

    I have a table named EXPENSES with 3 main fields:

    1) Date

    2) Expense

    3) Vendor - Has a relationship to another table named VENDORS where I have all the contact details of the vendors like:

    A) Name

    B) Phone Number

    C) Address

     

    As I told you before I used to work all my data in excel and now I want to import all this information to the Ninox DB I created. 

    When I want to import the information of the EXPENSES table I can do it perfectly well except for the field of “vendor” 

    It is clear for me that this information is coming from another table. And I also know that I can upload the vendors information in the other table. But if I do this then I need to link one by one each of the expenses with the vendors 

    So my main question is how I can import the information that is shared between two or more tables.

    There's a section in the manual about this - you have to import both tables at once:

    I did this OK. A bit of trial and error but it worked ...
