It is possible to create a new table of the visual database in an existing book (or directly when creating a book) from a CSV or XLSX file.
The table created will have the name of your file. You can change the name of your table later on.
Some rules must be respected in your file: the first line must contain the header of your columns, and each subsequent line must contain the corresponding values.
For example, the first line will contain:
First name, Last name, Email.
And the following lines the data:
Testing, Paul, firstname.lastname@example.org
