    3. On the Import window, nagivate to and select the .DRI file you wish to import.

    5. Make the desired selection in the Options pane. This is where you can specify which Scenario you wish to add the cases to, which ID code should be used for matching to existing cases, desired behavior for when a match is not found, and whether or not to display the import log.
      Select the DRI file you wish to import 

      Best Practice Tip: Change the Display Log option to Always – this is a quick way to QC your import as it will show you all cases that were imported, matched, or had an error.
