Re: Import passwords

Hello,

Excel isn't really my fortê, not even close. But I did try playing around with it for a brief moment, but couldn't figure out how to get it to look like some other format we support for importing.

 

Basically, if you can get your excel-generated to xml to look like what keepass produces, we can import it. There is an example undeneath. You should have an one <Entry> element per password you wish to import, The Notes, URL are optional, if they are missing then its not a problem.  As to how to get your excel to produce something like this, I have no idea.  

 

 

<KeePassFile>
    <Entry>
        <String>
            <Key>Title</Key>
            <Value>mandatory descriptive title here</Value>
        </String>
        <String>
            <Key>UserName</Key>
            <Value>username here</Value>
        </String>
        <String>
            <Key>Password</Key>
            <Value>password here</Value>
        </String>
        <String>
            <Key>Notes</Key>
            <Value>if you have no notes, this can be empty</Value>
        </String>
        <String>
            <Key>URL</Key>
            <Value>http://www.url.here/login</Value>
        </String>
    </Entry>
</KeePassFile>
