1. Click on Browse and you will be able to search for the text file you wish to import. Once you get to it, select it and click on Accept.
Remember that the text files need to be tabulated (separate each column using the TAB key and not with comas).

2. Select from the drop-down list the point layer to which you want to import. If that layer doesn't exist, you need to created it using the Create_vector_layer option, from the :Category:Add_New_Layer tool.

3. Select the attributes of the imported file that contains Latitude and Longitude information to ensure the correct georeferencing of the objects.

4. You can also select the option to Calculate the attributes of the base layer.

5. In the left panel you can see the structure of the GeoAgro GIS layer. In the right panel you can see the attributes of the imported file. Match all the attributes that you will need to avoid loosing data.

6. If the data from the text file has the attribute name in the first row, mark the option as shown in the image below.
Otherwise, you will need to know in advance what attribute corresponds to each data type in order to do the matching.
