Chapter 25. Working with Lists and Databases > Importing and Exporting Data

Importing and Exporting Data

Excel enables you to create a list using data from a text file; you can also save a list to a text file. You import and export text files when you want to share lists between programs, such as mailing-list management software and database programs that cannot read Excel 2000/2002 worksheet files.

Note

In some cases, you can extract data directly from a database without having to convert it to a file. See the following section for details on how to connect to an external database.
