Important advice:
If you have activated the expert mode you can additionally define which columns should be managed by the GISconnector. Futhermore, you can set the transfer options regarding columns and rows for the connection you are about to create.  If you do not use the expert mode, the GISconnector will keep the standard options defined in the basic settings.
