ANN: SMImport suite v1.75 for Delphi/C++Builder

Good day,

today I released the new version of SMImport for Delphi/C++Builder 1.75.

SMImport for Delphi&C++Builder is a native VCL component suite for data
importing into dataset from external files of different formats.

The current version supports the import from:
1. MS Excel spreadsheet (directly without OLE/DDE)
2. text delimited file
3. text fixed width file
4. XML file (directly without XML DOM interfaces, compartible with
   TClientDataset and SMExport formats)
5. HTML file
6. MS Access database (using DAO/MS Jet)
7. MS Word document
8. Lotus 1-2-3 spreadsheet
9. QuattroPro spreadsheet
10. Paradox table
11. DBase table
12. some dataset component

Also SMImport suite contains the TSMIWizardDlg compound component with
visual dialog for import parameters setting (like wizard in MS Office). With
this component you can control a data import process in one place and give a
flexible application to your end-users. For this component you can define
the restrictions for end-user access.

Import is available for any dataset which inherits from TDataset class (ADO,
IBX, BDE, dbExpress, DAO, DOA, Flash Filer, Advantage, DBISAM, Halcyon etc).

- english

predefined functions are divided on categories.

creation for formulas/expressions.

columns before real import - for example, create a dataset and load data
