Here’s how to import game data from a spreadsheet into GDE. Once your import is complete, GDE will remember your settings so you won’t need to go through the wizard again.

If you’d like to clear your settings and import from a different spreadsheet, select the Window→Game Data Editor→Clear Import & Export Settings from the menu.

Note: .xlsx and .xls Excel formats are supported.
