Database import feature drops General information / Description field (solved in 1.6)

Hi All,

I am using openLCA 1.5.0 on a Windows 7, 64-bit platform. When I use openLCA's Database import feature I am losing metadata in the General information / Description field.

My workflow is as follows:
1) Create two new databases: "Test_Send" and "Test_Receive" both with the "Complete reference data" option selected.

2) Create new unit process in Test_Send database
This unit process contains metadata in the General information / Description field.

3) Use the Database Import feature to import Test_Send into Test_Receive

4. When I open Test_Process inside of the Test_Receive database, the General information / Description field is empty

Any feedback or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Hi, thank you for the detailed description! This has been fixed in version 1.6, I just tested to be sure with recent 1.6.2.
Best wishes,
Andreas
