I would prefer to copy/paste. Select the data you want in Excel, cursor into the selected area, RIGHT click, copy. Then cursor into wherever you want the data to go in this other program, RIGHT click, paste. Whether or not this will work depends on how compatible the data structures are in the two applications.

I have just had a look at the Direct-Shop web-site and unhappily their FAQs are silent on the subject of how you set up this program in the first place, nor do I know how compatible Direct-Shop is with Excel in terms of data format.

 

What you could try is set up your Excel spreadsheet in one half of your screen and Direct-Shop in the other. Then drag and drop one data item from Excel to D-S and see if it accepts it. Then select two items in Excel and see if they go across to the correct places. If that works try selecting say five items at one go and try with them. If that works you should be good to go. Select all the remaining items in Excel and drag them across.

 

If this doesn't work then I think you will need to address this question to D-S. Since I presume they are charging you good money for their services they should have an interest in helping you change over to using their system - or else you won't use it !
