Summary

Label libraries and Tag libraries created in EZware-500 can easily be imported into EZware-5000 by following just a few steps.

NOTE: Importing tags into EasyBuilder-5000 v3.32 and earlier versions from Microsoft Excel is only compatible with Microsoft Excel 2003 and earlier versions. Microsoft Excel 2007 is not supported.  Importing tags into EasyBuilder-5000 v4.10 does support Microsoft Excel 2007.
