What is the difference between import() and download() in Amiquote?

I successfully used Amiquote OLE to automate download. One thing that puzzles me. What is the difference between import() and download()? I tried both. Both works successfully. I don't know what is the difference.

Download - downloads data from the internet and stores them in local TEXT file.
Import - imports, i.e. takes already downloaded data (TEXT) files and asks AmiBroker to import the data from that files.
First you need to download then you can import.

These two are 2 separate and completely different things.
