How do I import songs from another database into the SongShow Plus database? Also, can I convert another database into SongShow Plus™ format?(SW005)
If you have some programming skills, or know someone who does, there are presently three options for importing songs into SongShow Plus:
Option 1: Use the XML Import ProModule (introduced in October 2003). This lets you import one or more songs at a time from an XML document into any supported database.
Option 2: Use the User Database ProModule. This provides a Microsoft Access format song database that can be accessed directly from development tools like Visual Basic and Microsoft Access.
Option 3: Add songs to the native database using the version 1 format. This is no longer a recommended approach since the XML Import ProModule is now available, but information for this can be found here: Importing Songs into the SongShow Plus™ Database.
Note: When using SongSelect™ and other compatible databases, you do not need to import songs into SongShow Plus™ since the program accesses those databases directly.
