Gegevens importeren
{{man note| Importing vs. opening |Please recognize that importing a database is different from opening a database. When you import, you are actually bringing data from one database into a GRAMPS database. When you open a file, you are editing your original file.}}
To import data, select ''' File Familiestambomen ->Import ''' . The '''Import database''' dialog will open, asking you to specify the file you wish to import.
{{man warn| Data loss with some formats |It is important to note that the importing process is not perfect for GEDCOM and GeneWeb databases. There is a chance that some of the data in these databases will not be imported into GRAMPS.}}
*GRAMPS V2.x database (grdb): Prior to Version 3.0, this native GRAMPS database format was a specific form of Berkeley database (BSDDB) with a special structure of data tables. This format was binary and architecture-dependent. It was very quick and efficient, but not generally portable across computers with different binary architecture (e.g. i386 vs. alpha).
*GRAMPS XML: The GRAMPS XML file was the default format for older (pre 2.x) versions of GRAMPS. Unlike the grdb format, it is architecture independent and human-readable. The database may also have references to non-local (external) media objects, therefore it is not guaranteed to be completely portable. The GRAMPS XML database is created by exporting ( ''' Family Trees Familiestambomen ->Export... ''' ) to that format.
*GRAMPS package: The GRAMPS package is a compressed archive containing the GRAMPS XML file and all media objects (images, sound files, etc.) to which the database refers. Because it contains all the media objects, this format is completely portable. The GRAMPS package is created by exporting ( ''' Family Trees Familiestambomen ->Export... ''' ) data in that format.
If you import information from another GRAMPS database or GRAMPS XML database, you will see the progress of the operation in the progress bar of GRAMPS' main window.
