How do I import a list of categories to make into different "industry" fields?

Hi, I want to add a few hundred options under the "Industry" field (for when I am importing company lists from InsideView). Rather than doing that manually, is there a way to import a list so that these are done all in one hit?

If you have access to the filesystem, the best bet would be to modify the custom/include/language/en_us.lang.php (or whatever language you are using). You will find your dropdown and then add your values to the array. The values will look like
'<ITEM NAME>' => '<DISPLAY VALUE>',
Where <ITEM NAME> is the dropdown value's actual name and <DISPLAY VALUE> is the human readable value. You can then write a script to automate the process of updating this file.
