#1105 Import of XML from password safe misses entries


An XML file exported from ver 3.30 has about 700 entries, some from older versions. Keepass imports without an error displayed but only gets 280 entries. Looking at the XML I see no import success correlation with position in the file. XML values "look" OK. Could it be that entries are being ignored because of fields that Keepass doesn't handle? See XML samples attached.

Solving this problem and moving to Keepass is important because we want to migrate from Password Safe which is not stable on Win8.

    I've tested your samples, but couldn't observe any problems; they are all imported fine.

    Did you look in the 'vendor' and 'software' groups for the imported entries?

    Worked great! All entries now show up.

    One followup question, however. I would prefer to ignore the groups and just have one big flat file. I can't find that option.

    When you had groups in Password Safe, KeePass imports the entries into groups, too.

    If you do not want to use groups anymore, import the file, click 'Edit' -> 'Show All Entries', select all (e.g. by 'Edit' -> 'Select All') and drag & drop them e.g. into the topmost group. All other groups will be empty then and you can delete them, if you wish.

    Best regards,
