Personalized Mugs from Excel

Personalize Volume Orders Using a Spreadsheet

Use Excel, Open Office or other spreadsheet application

A couple of terms you need to understand, columns & rows. Columns go up and down, think of a column you would see out side a big building. They may have several columns holding up a roof at the entry way. Columns go up and down. Rows go left to right. In a spreadsheet, such as Excel, each column is labeled at the top with a letter (A, B, C..etc) and each row is labeled with a number at the beginning of each row (down the left). Here we have entered 5 names to illustrate how your names should appear. Once you have entered all of your variables, you will need to "Save As" (not just "Save") and choose either "txt" or "csv" file type. (either one will work). Upload or send us a copy of your txt or csv file and we will take from there. This same concept would apply if you are using a database. You would export fields/data to a delimiter txt file.

If you already have your names in a spreadsheet or database then then you just need to understand how to save as or export your names to a text file. All databases and spreadsheets should have the ability to generate a CSV file. If you are unsure about this then simply search the help sections of your spreadsheet or database using the term "CSV".
