CSV (Comma Separated Value) can be used to import customers or suppliers to Aronium.
In Aronium software one entity can be used for both purposes as customer or supplier. Flags Customer and Supplier are used if you need separate this companies or persons. If you decide that some company can't be your customer, you simply disable customer option in general info for that company and after that this company/person won't appear in POS section when you make sales. Sales bills can't be made for this company/person.
