Hi, I'll confess to having only just discovered ProcessWire, and am currently getting my head around the fundamental differences between it and other CMSs/CMFs I've used in the past. I'm very impressed with its potential though. I have a question however that I hope you guys can help me with. I'm involved in a project to implement a searchable database of dams from across the world (in fact something akin to the Skyscraper demo except that the dams will be searchable on many more criteria). We already have a database table containing all 600+ dams and I'm wondering how to import those into ProcessWire in a way that it can handle. Is it possible simply to add that table to the ProcessWire database and tell it how to interact with it, or will that complicate things further down the line? I don't fancy having to manually add all the dams to ProcessWire, since quite apart from the time and hassle it would also introduce human error. All advice is gratefully received Tony.
