{{man note|New feature since Gramps 3.3|Previously, sources were not exported, but now they are. Sources are referred to by their title text. You can add further details to a source after importing.}}
{{man note|New feature since Gramps 4.2.1|Now you can export and import place information. Also, you can refer to places in marriage and person sections by using a "place id". See below for more details.}}
There are three main uses for this format:
Your data is broken up into four sections representing individuals, marriages, children, and places. The exported fields and column names are:
;Individuals: Person, Lastname, Firstname, Callname, Suffix, Prefix, Title, Gender, Birthdate, Birthplace(or Birthplaceid), Birthsource, Baptismdate, Baptismplace(or Baptismplaceid), Baptismsource, Deathdate, Deathplace(or Deathplaceid), Deathsource, Burialdate, Burialplace(or Burialplaceid), Burialsource, NoteoteNote
;Marriages: Marriage, Husband, Wife, Date, Place(or Placeid), Source, Note
;Families: Family, Child
;Places: PlacesPlace, Title, Name, Type, Latitude, Longitude, Code, Enclosed_by, Date
The first column in each area is the Gramps ID. That is what will tie your edits back to the correct data, so don't alter those data. Load this file into your favorite spreadsheet using comma separated, double-quote text delimited, and Text format (any encoding for now). Then you can add or correct data, and save it back out, keeping the same format. You can then import the data back on top of your old data and it will be corrected.
