Exporting data from PPMP

If you're currently using PPMP and looking to migrate to Cliniko we've put together a quick guide that will make the process as painless as possible!

First, find the PPMP database.

We'll need to find the Database file. It should be in the PPMP folder on your computer and will look a little like the image below:

Double click to open it.

You may be prompted with a security warning—just press Enable Content as below:

There will be a list of Tables on the left hand side. Locate the Patients table, and we're nearly done!

Next, begin the export!

Right click on the Patients table and choose Export to Excel.

Finally, save your data as a CSV file.

Once you've exported the file to Excel, you'll need to save it as a CSV file (which is the type of file Cliniko requires). When in Excel, you can go to File → Save As, and select CSV as the file type.

Once that's finished, you can follow the steps for importing it into Cliniko!

👆 Note: Unfortunately, beyond this guide, Cliniko cannot help with this initial step of getting the data. Once you have it, we can help with importing it, but we won't be able to get the data from PPMP for you. If you're having trouble getting your data, we recommend reaching out to their support team, as they'll know best! Just tell them that you need a CSV file of your patients!
