When the orders are imported, the current order list will be cleared from the Orders Tab and Map. Therefore, please make sure you have saved order data before importing any data if you do not want to lose your data. Moreover, if your import type is either type 2 or type 3, then the station data will also be cleared. Because, new stations will be created from the addresses or coordinates. So, please make sure that you have saved your station data also.

    Putting coordinates in again is just plain dumb.  Once depots and stations are entered, orders should be input simply by depot to station (use names) and have the program calculate everything else.
