How to export from Import_export.module (Drupal 4.6) to import with
Node_import.module (Drupal 4.7):

You can now export nodes from Drupal 4.6 with import_export.module
from different types of nodes to Drupal 4.7 using node_import.module,
especially tested from Flexinode in Drupal 4.6 to CCK in Drupal 4.7.

To be able to export properly you can choose the default values of
delimiters after this patch, in the second page of the CSV export

Select only the fields which already exists in your updated Drupal 4.7

For: "Output format of the Taxonomy terms": Select: "Term names" (as default)
For: "Multiple-term delimiter": Choose: Pipe delimiter (|) (as default)
For: "Field Delimiter": Choose: Comma (,) (as default)
For: "Text delimiter": Choose: Quote (") (as default)

Leave Max. Field length empty if you really don't need it. (It trims
the field size to the number of character)

Do a "Friendly Export" for a file export after you have tested the
screen output with the "Export" button.

Any feedback will be helpful for further development.
