I amended a copy of my csv files as follows:


Compared to my original csv file, I had to remove the field names that
were in the csv file (e.g. event,onlinegame,site,www...,date,yyyy....

I also had to remove all full stop (.) characters, such as in the url
name and within the list of moves (e.g. 1. e4 d7 2. gf3...). Instead
of removing the full stops, could I have prefixed the character with
the backstroke (\), e.g. to become www\.flyordie\.com? The user guide
says so but when I tried the csv file import failed.

Moreover, I had to add an id number to represent the id primary key,
as the first column of data. I thought there would be a way to
automatically add this column to the csv file?
