One Answer:

Hello mnady,

First, you will need a domain model for your database, so every table must be described as a separate persistent type (entity).

Second, when you get a list of columns to export, you do the following:

 List<string> columns; // a list of columns to export

 using (var session = Domain.OpenSession()) {
    using (var t = session.OpenTransaction() {

        var items = session.Query.All<Customer>();
        foreach (var item in items) {
            var values = new List<string>();
            foreach (string column in columns) {

The import routine is the opposite to this one.

Hello mnady,

Try this one:

var typeName = "Customer";
var type = Type.GetType(typeName);
var items = session.Query.All(type);
