5.1. Dialog: Initial dialog
This dialog allows the user to choose an existing document or create a new document. Existing documents may be selecting from the list of recently opened documents or by select a file with the file chooser dialog. Documents can also be opened via the network if other users are running Glom on the local network. Finally, a new document can be created either by opening a template file which already contains some initial tables and records, or by creating an empty document.
5.4. Dialogue: Connection
This dialogue requests a user name and password for connection to a database server. This is usually not the same username and password combination with which you log in to your system. All Glom systems require a database server on which the actual data will be stored. If the database server is not running on your local computer ("localhost"), then you must also provide its network hostname, such as "glomserver.openismus.com", though your hostname will be different.
Your system administrator can provide these database login details.
If you are the system administrator, see Glom's Postgres Configuration web page for help with installing and configuring a database server.
5.5. Dialogue: Connection Error
This dialogue is shown when Glom could not connect to the specified database server. Either the database server is not running at the specified hostname, or the user name and password were not accepted by the database server. See the Connection Dialogue section for more details.
5.24. Dialog: Import Into Table
This dialog allows the user to import a CSV (comma separated value) file into the current database table. It shows the first few rows of the file to import and allows the user to select the target field in the database for each column in the CSV file. For auto-incremented primary keys, the primary key field cannot be used as a target field, but otherwise one column must be imported into the primary key field.
