What are the supported file types for Connexion import files?

Applies to
  • Connexion Client all versions

Import files must be ASCII (plain text) files–for example, with file extension .dat or .mrc that contain records in one of these standards: OCLC-MARC or MARC 21 or, for bibliographic records only, Dublin Core Qualified, Dublin Core Simple, or MARC XML.

Caution: If you try to import from a non-MARC file, or a non-Dublin Core file (Qualified or Simple), or MARC XML–for example, a file with the extension .doc, .xls, .mdb, .msg, .gif, .jpeg, or .tif) Connexion displays an error message: Improper File Format.
