This section describes how external data can be imported into the StreamV System. External Data may be imported as part of starting up a new system, or external data can be imported into the system after you are running on it. The methods to be used in each case can be different, and you can cause severe damage to the system if you incorrectly load or delete records (especially on an already running system). You should contact Cove systems for assistance if you are not completely comfortable with performing these steps, or have questions about the possible effects.
