Import CI with parent/child relation

I'm trying to import CI's using the Data exchange. I created the .ini file which runs with no errors but in the .xml file
under the child class the
attribute = Parent wih value = Parent
attribute = ParentID with value = blank.

The parentID vale does not relate back to the Parent class ID.

Any ideals? Is there a way to import CI data and have it relate to an existing CI? If yes, how can is it done?
thanks

Re: Import CI with parent/child relation

hi

the relation can be imported as a "CI component" item.

the ini-file can contain only 2 columns - the searchcode or id of parent and child CI's.
both fields should be set as "unique key" in the import mapping.
