CSV Import of Multiple Subject Headings

Can I import multiple subject headings for an item using a single field or do I have to create a separate column/field for each heading?

Thank You,


Yes you can import multiple subject headings from one cell. You just need to type a delimiter between each separate subject heading within the cell. A typical delimiter is a comma, but I would recommend using a less common symbol such as ~ or * so that terms or phrases that have commas or other common symbols such as "-" don't accidentally get split apart. Then in the CSV import plugin settings page, under the last option "Choose Element Delimiter" just enter the symbol you used as your delimiter and CSV Import will automatically split them into multiple subject entries when your items are uploaded. You can use delimiters for any element field, but I think you have to use the same delimiter symbol throughout the entire CSV file.
