Choosing a Field File will generate a new dialogue that will ask you to buck between an Excel and CSV format. Since the data from CassavaBase is in Excel format, choose the Excel option.

After submitting the formatting information, a final dialogue box will appear, asking you to input information about the file that is to be imported onto the tablet. After hitting the "OK" button, the file will be fully imported to the Android tablet.
