Quotation action - you can select 'Add' to add quotation marks to the imported string, 'Remove' to remove all the quotation marks from the imported string or 'As is' to save the original quotation marks.

Char case - set the case of the imported string. 'As is' saves the original string, 'Upper' sets the whole string to upper case, 'Lower' sets the whole string to lower case, 'UpperFirst' sets the first letter of the string to upper case, 'UpperFirstWord' sets the first letter of each word to upper case.

Replacements

Use this tab to set the replacement list for the selected field. Fill the list in the following format:

<Value-to-find>=<Replace-with-Value>.

E.g., you set the following replacemts for the field 'Continent':

'South America'='S. America'

'North America'='N. America',

that means, that all the values 'South America' of the field 'Continent' will be replaced with values 'S. America', and values 'North America' will be replaced with 'N. America' respectively.
