Points to Remember: An ACL project functions as a container for data. You import the source data into your project from existing data sources, such as Excel worksheets, text files, Access databases, dBASE files, and so forth. You import each data source as a separate table. Once you import the data, you can then analyze it. Data Definition Wizard is used to import data into your project.
