Importing and Exporting Data from a CSV File Obtain existing data from a CSV file and quickly import it into Blist without any manual entry.

In addition, users can also export data from Blist into a CSV format. Charting to Illustrate Data through Visuals Create a variety of attractive charts in Blist to illustrate data through visuals that further enable you to spot trends over time. Emailing HTML or Text Users can send email from a Blist to themselves or forward it to friends and colleagues as either an HTML table or in plain text format. Data is now immediately accessible in email to view or print."Until Blist, database technology has been too complicated to use and costly for the average person and spreadsheets lacked many advanced features," said Kevin Merritt, the company's founder and CEO. "Blist marries the simplicity of a spreadsheet with the power of a fully featured relational database in a more user-friendly format delivered over the Web for mainstream consumers, including individuals or small to medium sized businesses. Collaboration is at the core of Blist and these new features plus others yet to come, further enable users to interact with applications, people, and data in compelling ways."
