Here's an example of the syntax for an import file that adds two users in the group "musicians".

Answer

Note the use of "passwordc" (for password cleartext) as opposed to "password" - this is necessary when the password has not
been previously encrypted by Web Crossing, as it would be if this file had been exported from a Web Crossing database. The
"group" tags are not required; if groups are not being used for Access Lists, you only need the user lines in your import
file.

Example
<group ID=1 name="musicians"> 
  <user ID=1 name="Chopin, Frederic" email="fred@pianolessons.com" passwordc="mazurka"> 
  <user ID=2 name="Haydn, Joseph" email="joe@esterhazy.gov" passwordc="farewell" > 
</group>
