Export Custom Places
All custom places listed in the Custom Place Manager can be exported into a tab-delimited .txt text file.
1. Select the Tools tab > Manage.
2. In the Custom Place Manager, click Export.

4. Assign a file name.
5. Select a target location where the export file will be saved.
6. Click Save to create the export file.
Import Custom Places
Using the Import Custom Place Wizard, you can import sets of custom places which were created in an environment independent of PC*MILER. During the import process, PC*MILER provides the option to enter the whole set of imported places as stops on a route, or save the imported places as custom places for future use.
The Import Custom Place Wizard first tries to match each record in the input file to a place or address range in the database, converting the records to a format that PC*MILER can use. The input file must be a text file with columns delimited by a tab or other character such as a comma. Here are several lines from a sample text file of custom places that are suitable for importing:
1. Select the Tools tab > Import to open the Import Custom Place Wizard
2. In the Wizard, select Tab Delimited if the input file is tab-delimited text (recommended). Otherwise, select Other Delimited and enter a delimiter in the box to the right. This setting tells the Wizard where a new column should begin in the input file. Most commonly, the delimiter is either a tab or a comma.
3. Click Browse and navigate to the drive and directory where your data file is located. Be sure to select the correct file type in the drop-down, then select the file to be imported and click Open.
