# What to use the Import CSV File step for
This step imports data from a CSV into your Axiom. You can then use the data in other automation steps, such as web actions like 'Enter text' Step. For example, import data from a CSV to upload via a web form.
You can use this step to:
- Import data for data entry
- Upload multiple CSVs to merge into single CSV for export
- Import CSV data to upload into a CRM
- Import data to filter and clean
# How to configure the Import CSV File Step
# Import CSV
Select the CSV file to upload. Manually enter the file path or use 'Click to select.' You can also use 'Insert data' to pass a file name or path from another step as a variable. Combine a string and variable to create a file path if required. If you see corrupted characters, please ensure the file is encoded in UTF-8 format.
