Solved the NAS problem building a server with an old computer, installed ubuntu server and C/A on it, and managed to mount the media folder and import folder from the NAS. Now the problem is to import a lot of items on the database. I've an excel file with the path/to/the/file and metadata content (in that way i've always imported to FileMaker), but it seems that C/A wont support this import method? could you help me?

i read the data import wiki page, and i understood everything, but there's no instructions about the way to tell to the C/A importer where the file (photo .jpg file) is stored inside the import directory, so i can import all the metadata for a file but not the file itself
the exact issue is: In the wiki appear a special sources named: filename and filepath, but: 1. Its impossible to put that special source in the mapping xlsx because it have to be in the same "source" column where i have to put the number of the Data xlsx where the path/to/file is
