@mwbenowitz Thank you Mike.So I could use all the element that I created under the ca_objects table
Do I need to do any refinery parameter since the format is same?

@lucybbs yes, provided that you also copied or re-created your CollectiveAccess system so that those elements also exist in the new system. And, if you truly want to run a straight import and do nothing to the data, then you don't need the refineries (though keep them in mind if you want to do anything like skip a field if its empty, etc.)

some of the column have null data, so I will skip them in settings or under the mapping? @mwbenowitz Appreciate your detailed response.
One more thing, how do I make sure I am adding the field not replacing them? Thanks.

Hi, I’ve got a question concering the start page of Pawtucket2. When I go directly to index.php or click on the Logo in the upper left corner, I get the following error:

Errors occurred when trying to access /providence/frontend/index.php:
View does not exist

I don’t find the according view file – can somebody point me in the right direction?

@lucybbs you skip them in the mapping (See the options settings on this page: There is also a setting "existingRecordPolicy" for import mappings, if you set it to "merge" it will add your new data to existing records (it is also described on that wiki page)

@kbecker87 what theme are you using? in the views directory there should be a "Front" directory with a front_page_html.php file that index.php will point to

@yelto I've ended up creating a bug report for the previously mentioned issue, hope it's ok. Thanks.
