Click Check data, and then match the columns.


 
How can create a CSV file from Excel?
If you have data in excel, such as a list of collections, or contacts, you can export this as a CSV file.

Can I import the relationship between the collection and the artwork?
This is not possible at this time.  You can import your collections, for example, but must recreate the association between the collections and their artwork.
