It is possible to export a category, edit it and import it back to the Labfolder MDB. However, it is important to remember that:

  • Note that in the process of re-importing the existing inventory items will not be updated, because Labfolder's Excel-to-MDB importer does not check for duplicates.
  • When you upload an Excel file to an existing inventory list, all items are sorted into your list in alphabetical order.
  • The export file will contain the Status attribute which, while importing a file, is by default assigned to each of the items and cannot be imported from an external Excel sheet. Therefore, before importing the sheet. It is therefore recommended to skip the status attribute while matching the attributes during the upload process.
