I am using a large, complex deck (which uses images and sounds) and I would like to add a new field to it. I have the data for the new field, but it is over a thousand entries and I'd prefer not to add it by hand. Is there a way for me to merge new information into an existing deck?
The new data has an index which matches the deck, of course.
I'm open to moderately complicated suggestions.

    Please see the importing section of the manual for how importing can apply updates.

    That was a lot easier than I was expecting. Thanks.
