  2. Go to the options of the Survey module
  3. Go to survey types > select the file type > Edit
  4. In the Point code list, add the items. Make sure to select their corresponding blocks
  5. In case you input a layer suffix, create new layer(s) with the same suffix
  6. Go to the Survey module and select the command Process File (SRVJ)
  7. Select the file type and then select the file containing the data points saved on your device
  8. Associate each item to the right column and click OK

  10. The program will import the data points into their respective layers. Insert the date anywhere in the drawing
