*   Importing the NIST/EPA/NIH Mass Spectral Database
The Mass Frontier application supports NIST/EPA/NIH Mass Spectral Database 2005 (NIST 2005 Library). You can either install the NIST 2005 Library—if the library is in the Mass Frontier format—or import it in NIST (.mdf) file format. While the NIST library is importing, the data is converted to the Mass Frontier database format (SQL Server). This process can take up to several hours.
