Import Text Lists in Essbase

I don’t think I need to provide an introduction to Text Lists in Essbase. (however if you are not aware of it, please go through
This blog is about “How to Import a text list?”
I was once trying to import a text list into EAS and I never ever (not even in my wildest dreams) had an idea that ‘Importing a Text List” will make a blog entry.
As it turns out there is no import button (or it is not highlighted) “Where is my import button?” 🙁
Since I couldn’t find out a way to import a text list I thought creating it from scratch. (Then I made the accidental discovery, I think most of them are accidental 🙂 )
How to import a text list
Create a new text list

Do not click on “Apply” button, instead press “Enter”

There you go, when you hit “Enter”, the “Import” button will be highlighted.

Too many steps and tricks to perform an import operation 🙂
