I'm working on a project that will require a solution like field_collection aims to solve.
My project needs a node container that holds statistical data collections for several years.
node: title, array (year, text, number, number), taxonomy
After assessing the different options available to me, I've come to three possible solutions:
1. Custom module, make a cck sub module under d6 or d7 that gives me the fields for the array.
2. Use cck-3.x and the multigroup under d6.
3. field_collection on d7
Now, I think solution 3 is the best solution in the long term. However, it seems to me it is quite a while until this solution is ready to use. The greatest obstacle to me at the moment is the possibility to import large datasets. This leads to the following questions:
Is there planned a way to import datasets through for example feeds?
Can someone point me in the direction of how to manually import datasets into mysql?
