There is a little bug at the moment with Mom & Pop flavour concentrates making the import puke (the & stuffs things up) You can edit your xml using a txt editor and change the M&P to Mom and Pop if you really need to get it in the database now.

Or run it thru a validator first (it will give you the line number of the error)

if there is a little error it wouldnt have imported at all - grubby has done a great job with the import but the export from ELR does have a bug where it is not strictly well formatted xml the & should be changed to & or a cddata tag

I’m a bit of a dunce when it comes to computers…if we import recipes over here this way will it add the flavors in the recipes into our flavor list? Or do I still have to do that manually? Either way this is exciting!!

not quite but when you move it off your elr list into you vc list there is a button to add these flavours to stash so as long as they are recognised it could save you some time. But the stash add is super easy compared to ELR
