Firstly, Rocket does not supply "3rd party" tools - they are the first
party - they own Unidata
Secondly, are you thinking like you could do in SQL and create a script?
You could create a script and invoke UniData's ED to create the records.
Or you could go to a site like pickwiki.com, and look at the sample code
there. There are a bunch of load/dump routines that I wrote (and I'm
sure others have written some too) that will transfer data between MV
systems and csv or fixed-width text files.
And PI always came with a data entry system called ENTRO iirc. I think
it comes with UV, so it probably comes with UD, but it's well old ...
but I always just use ED.
If you've got ENTRO, I'd actually think that might be a good starting
point! Shout for help by all means, but getting to grips with a new
database system - especially a different paradigm of database system -
is always tricky. I'll just give you a couple of play tips to get
