trying to import from roboform

Recommended Posts

I am using ubuntu 18.04.3

I am trying to import an .htm file created by roboform

I went to files/import and choose html file windows (I used a windows 10 machine).  I went to my documents folder where greglist.htm resided.  I tried to import the file (greglist.htm) from my documents folder but it only listed the 2 .txt files in that folder and not the .htm folder.  So I tried to exit (2 windows) and thought I had.  Then I thought I would try again.  It came up with the export screen again, this time it choose JSON and its stuck.  I can shut it down but, everytime I bring it back up its stuck on the import screen and will not move.  I figured out how to get back to the menu so its no longer stuck but, still, I can shut it down and it always comes back to export which I can't make work.  I would send a copy of a log file but can't find any.

I have, incidentally, been messing with this stuff for over 50 years so have some small knowledge of how its supposed to work.   

Thoughts?

@jgw0,

I believe the issue might be the file extension .htm;  it should be .html. Although any browser would regard both as same; however, Enpass would probably neglect the .htm and will strictly allow an import of .html file. Try renaming the file and check the import.

I renamed the files and it was ignored (continued to show me just the text files).  Then I found I could actually choose the file from the folder.  The name of the file is now greglist.html but, when I tried this, I was told there was nothing to import.  I could probably tell your program that we are dealing with a txt file but I think the formatting would do that one in.

Its kinda interesting in that the file is actually a formatted text file (2 columns and each column is broken into 2 more columns)  I was going to send you part of the file but it morphed into 2 columns and was not accurate.    I was thinking of sending the entire file but that would include all my passwords (a 50 year accumulation) and that wouldn't really be all that wise.

I also thought that, perhaps, choosing "windows html" might have your program thinking I am on a windows machine - I am not. 

I am also considering converting the html file to txt using libre office writer.  Here is what one looks like after such (access for my router)::

 

Act­iontec C20­00a=d

192­.168.0.1

adm­in_user_­name:

 

admin

adm­in_password:

Here is another:

So, basically, I am stopped...................

Thoughts?

since there are no more replies it seems that its not possible to convert/import roboform data?

How about this.  I have another password program called Revelation.  I use this as a kindofa backup and its barebone.  I can export their data file and it looks like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<revelationdata version="0.4.14" dataversion="1">

Hi @jgw0,

Thanks for sharing the details.

While importing an HTML, the select file prompt has an option in the bottom right to choose between All files and Document files. Please choose All files and then you'd probably see the HTML file to import.
