Alternative method

An easy way for a one-off change of file is to use the Import URL. This can be found from the DataGrab saved imports list and will be in the form:

http://yoursite.com/index.php?ACT=20&id=6 

You can use a different file by adding a filename= parameter, eg:

http://yoursite.com/index.php?ACT=20&id=6&filename=http://yoursite.com/feed/new.csv
