Using LSRC in v1.90+ with CSV files

6 years 1 month ago #55768 by bdizzle

I'd like to know if it is possible to use the CSV files in the admin/remotecontrol/ subfolders to create a survey and then add question groups and questions, in 1.90+ build 9642.

My worry is that those CSV files have headers that specify the DBVersion.
surveys/template_db138.csv specifies a DBVersion of 138, while groups/BIO.csv has a DBVersion of 130.

Will these files work? Has the DB structure changed? I noticed that v1.90+ supports only LSS/LSG/LSQ and not CSV.
If that is the case, and I'd like to use an existing survey as a model, is there any way of exporting my files as CSV and not LSS/LSG/LSQ?

Note that I have added a feature request related to this topic:

In general the import should be downwards compatible meaning you can add files from DB version 22 into a system using DB version 25.

At 1.90 we switched to a new XML vbased export format while previously CSV was used. You can still import both file types at the 1.90 version.
