Importing a SOAPware Chart

This lesson describes how to import a SOAPware chart from one database to another. This can be done for individual charts as well as a bulk of charts.

IMPORTANT WARNING

If importing a chart that has the same First and Last name as an existing chart in the database, SOAPware will replace the existing chart with the new chart that is being imported.  Before importing a chart, it is important that you ensure there are no other patients with the same First and Last name in the database that you do not want to replace.
