If you have exported element data from eHealth, using nhExportData, there is an easy way to create a CSV file, and line up the DCI fields


Save the output as a text file, and remove the header information, so it looks similar to the following




Once you have the DCI column names lined up, you should be able to save this to CSV format and the DCI column headers will be lined up with the values in the fields


You can also create a text file template, with DCI column headers, already populated.  Then cut and paste elements out of the $NH_HOME/poller/elemnetCfgBackup.dci file


Save it as CSV, and your element's DCI fields should line up, below the DCI column headers
