The file is in CSV (comma separated
value) format, which is supported by almost all database program files,
Excel, etc. The format is:
Name, Unit, Qty, Price, Coupon, Purchased, Categories
Categories are separated by "+" characters as shown below. Optionally, after each category, you can specify a 2 character location to show aisle number or location by name (i.e. "PR" for produce in the item "Bananas" below).
An example file might look like this:
In the sample list, all items except "Bananas" are taxable (negative prices) and the item "Window Repair Kit" is a one-time purchase (it will not be remembered after it is purchased)
You can import and export the files in this format so that you can modify your lists on the desktop.
