Import Comps from Old Reports


If you’ve been using WinTOTAL to write up your reports for a while, you’ve accumulated a wealth of information you can add into your comps database for quick access later. To capture the power of that information in your comps database, you simply need to import it. Before you begin, you may want to collect all of the reports from which you wish to import comp data and place them in a single folder in your Appraisal Desktop File Cabinet. If you have a huge number of files (over 500), you may need to divide them among two or more folders to process them in batches. Once you’re ready to begin, to import comps from your old appraisal reports:

  1. From the Comps Database, click Import.
  2. Select the Import from reports in your File Cabinet option, and then click Next.
  3. Choose a cutoff date to insure that you do not pull in comp data older than your cutoff date, and then indicate how you want WinTOTAL to deal with duplicate comps by checking the Search for duplicate comps box and marking your choice.  When finished, click Next.
  4. Select the desired folder from list. Individual reports stored in that folder appear in the window to the right for reference.


  5. Click Finish to begin the import.
