Import/Export File Formats

Lien Program® File formats

 The following are the current data file structures for the various Lien Program® data files, for use with all other data formats but the Old Lien Writer format. If your data comes in this structure it will import. Note: Excel, DBF and CSV files do require a file header list for correct importing of their file records. If your data is going to be raw text, use the Comma or Tab delimited formats. If you do use the latter formats, however, you must have either data or empty quotes (“”) for all table fields whether you have data or not in the order listed below.


C          Character

D          Date (text to date.  Formats allowed DY/MN/YEAR or DY/MN/YEAR)

N          Number (text to number)

L          Logical (T or F to field)

Further Notices on Comma and Tab delimited files: Each field is separated by a comma or tab, and a record terminates with a carriage return (CHR(13) / line feed (CHR(10). All data must be within quotes (“”) text or numeric. Dates can be in a format of “mm/dd/yr” or “mm/dd/year”. Logical fields should be T for true (checked) or F for false (unchecked). The Lien Program® handles all other conversions. Many computer systems and accounting packages now offer this export formats:


You do not need to cover all 198 fileds listed for the Current Jobs / History tables, but you must have a space for every field to be imported.

Special Note for CSV, Delimited and SDK format export / import:: DBF files cannot export or import memo fields to these types of files.  Ergo, the fields for these field types are always at the end of the database table as not to cause confusion.  While the current size of a table is maybe 198 fields, only 191 fields will import or export.  The seven memo fields at the end will not.

You do not need to cover all 21 fileds listed for the Reference table, but you must have a space for every field to be imported.

Special Note for CSV, Delimited and SDK format export / import: DBF files cannot export or import memo fields to these types of files.  Ergo, the fields for these field types are always at the end of the database table as not to cause confusion.  While the current size of a table is maybe 21 fields, only 20 field will import or export.  The single memo field at the end will not.

During import, if the data is not in this format, it will not display correctly when using the Display Import option (see below).

Special Note: The Reference table requires that every reference have an account number. This field is particularly important if you are doing a Data Update. In the case of references, you can use the Data Update feature to import records from your company table that will 1) update the current record if an account number is found or 2) add the record as a new record if not. The Current Jobs/Liens, History, Other Liening Parties and Other Legal Parties tables use automatically generated and unique Record ID# numbers without user intervention.


You do not need to cover all 54 fields listed for the Company table, but you must have a space for every field to be imported.

Special Note for CSV, Delimited and SDK format export / import: DBF files cannot export or import memo fields to these types of files.  Ergo, the fields for these field types are always at the end of the database table as not to cause confusion.  While the current size of a table is maybe 54 fields, only 51 fields will import or export.  The three memo fields at the end will not.

When exporting or importing records, you can opt to display the data being imported or exported before anything is done with the data. Pressing Import will accept the record, Skip will skip to the next record, Import Rest will accept the rest of the records without review and Cancel will abort the import or export. Display is particularly useful during import if you want to check if the data is ‘lining’ up accurately. Just use Import to make sure several of the records in a row are coming in correctly. If so, press Cancel to abort the import, then you can import again without the display option on with confidence.
