How to add list of ISBNs?

Hi,

I just purchased Pro edition, I cannot find a way to add a list of ISBNs to the db, Any help please?

1. Copy the list to Excel
2. Add 6 empty columns in front of the ISBN column
3. Save the file as .csv
4. In Alfa use Files -> Import from CSV to import the list

I don't have Excel, and I'm not buying Excel just to enter a list of ISBNs to a book manager that should have this simple and basic feature.
I am an old timer Bookcat user but unfortunately it is discontinued and outdated. It has some wonderful and productive tools such as pasting an ISBN list and automatically retrieve info from web and add them to db.

At least you could implement the CSV creator in Alfaebook?? Instead of adding to alfaebooks ownership costs by buying Excel?

Marawani, you can use any other free spreadsheet editor like Google Docs
Alfa also allows to add book data from the web by ISBNs
