Import CSV files into Drupal CCK nodes | Grover Ponders

One of the projects I'm working on is to migrate a website from an old/outdated content management system I wrote 5+ years ago to something more modern - Drupal One of the challenges here is the listing type pages that provide rows of links to related websites. These links contain the link title, the URL (of course), and a brief description. The alternatives for moving this data was to either copy the rendered table into a single page node, or make use of the Content Construction Kit (CCK) to create custom nodes reflecting the data. Using CCK allows each list entry to be edited directly and actually follows the intended user's way of thinking much better - they DO NOT know HTML at all. So, I opted for the CCK method. There were thousands of links, so spending some time figuring out how to automate the migration was worth while.
