ExternalFolderID in tblPage

Vote:
 
Hi, I have an old application and we are porting data from there into EPiServer. I have figured out the database structure and realise that I will need to populate a number of tables such as the tblPage, tblWorkPage etc. I have figured out how to do this except for the column ExternalFolderID which I am not sure how it is populated. I presume that it has some thing to do with the File System. However, pages within my EPiServer have an id in this column even if they don't have any associated pages. Can anyone shed any light on this column and explain if this is something I can populate myself Many thanks

If importing data to an EPiServer site you should really use the API instead of going directly to the database. I know this might sound like extra work and unnecessary, but the trouble you risk getting into down the road is far worse. /Steve
