The user definable headers are a great extension for the Excel import. For now this takes a lot of time and this could help saving it a lot. Unfortunatly I don't see the 'No answer' point in the list. I always have to set these to 0. Could this one be added to? :roll:

Keep up the good work!

Hi, it is supported but apparently its missing from the template :shock: . The fieldname you should use is: NO-ANSWER-POINTS, just type it in yourself. The system will understand.
