To use NostoLoader you first need to export your data as a series of comma-separated values. One way to do this is to enter your data in a spreadsheet and save it as a CSV file.

The format is fairly simple:

The first line must contain your Nostomania username (in column A, if you're using a spreadsheet.)

The second line contains two fields. The first field (in spreadsheet column A) is the collectible category for this data, either coins, comics, or magazines. The second field is the destination list, which is either collection, salelist, or wantlist (in spreadsheet column B.)

The format of the remaining lines depends on what you specified on the second line, since each category/list combination has a slightly different format. All fields need to be listed in the CVS file, but not all fields need to have data in them. The fields that must have data in them are marked with REQ, while fields that can be empty are marked with OPT. Each field should go in a separate column if you're using a spreadsheet. The format for magazines examples is the same as comics.
