No, not directly. However both Entry and Analysis support several 
datafile formats (including CSV files) . Perhaps extract data from the 
database first, then import into either Analysis or Entry.

It is - you can use encrypted fields in both Analysis and Entry. The 
data is encrypted using 256-bit AES encryption (so far the strongest 
known encryption algorithm).
You can find an example on the website where the danish CPR (social 
security no.) is used within an encypted field.
