For example: IDs (1-10) of the compounds are in column A on the Excel sheet for assay report, and SD file or MRV file has IDs (1-10) and the corresponding structures.


Import File By Key form - File tab

You can select a file from you want to import structures. You have to select column A as key column and the field name of IDs in SD/MRV file. You can also decide if you want to create column headers or not. The structures in SD/MRV file can be imported according to IDs.




Import File By Key form - Columns tab

If the selected file contains additional fields, you can specify which properties to import on the Columns tab, data without structures can be imported as well. There is no mandatory field, but at least one column has to be selected.
