Seeking advice on bulk editing

Hi folks,

I'm seeking advice on the best approach for building a large scale FM database, adding over 750 legendary players. Am I stuck using the official game editor to manually add (or duplicate then edit) players and related details, or are there better/easier ways to bulk add new players from an Excel spreadsheet or other document format? Are there other/better tools, or shortcuts for such a project?

I have a very detailed .xlsx file with the player details/attributes/history, etc, but I don't see a more efficient method beyond the very laborious/slow option of adding players one by one. I'll continue working on it that way if need be but I was hoping to find some better solutions before I sink too much time in.

Second question: once I have built out the database (currently working in FM2016, as an example), what is the best process for converting that database and any related files (i.e. face packs) to use in FM2019 or 2020?

Any advice or recommendations from experienced editors would be much appreciated.
Hmmm... no options?
