Any examples of Importing data

I was poking around the source and some modules but cannot find (or simply don't know what I'm looking for) examples of how to handle importing data with code. I am able to set up import/export in my code (in my Driver.cs), but I just don't know how to go about importing it into another record without using the Import/Export module - or if it's even possible.

Are there any examples of how to import data into "new" records? Here is what I am trying to do: I have some forms set up to capture potential client information - I can later review these submissions in the Admin. For those that later "become" clients, I have them set-up a login/password and then give them access to a dashboard area. However, I do not want them to re-submit the same data (I only want to transfer about 75% of what they originally input).

Other than manually importing the data for that specific client, is there some mechanism of importing? Thanks in advance.

Check this out: It does use the import/export APIs from code.
