1) If you exported your file as a tab delimited txt file, and you do not see anything in that text file, then you probably did not export it correctly. You should see text. Also, you should NOT delete the record numbers. Just keep the record number. Then make sure that you change the number in the linksid.txt to the last record number in your database.

2) My suggestion is that you create the Categories first. You can do this with a separate bulkload of categories versus links. The bulkload.cgi will not create the categories on the fly.

3) Making a backup of your files is the smartest thing you can do when you are making changes to your database.
