Filemaker Pro 11 is running on two Windows 10 computers connected as Host and Client over a network.
The script to import data from an Excel .csv file utilizes the following script step options:
1. Un-Checked - Specify data source - File
2. Check - Specify import order, Import Action
a. Select - Update existing records in found set
b. Check - Don't import first record (contains field names)
3. Check - Perform without dialog
When the Import script is run from the Host computer, and the desired .csv file is manually selected, the Excel first row field names are not imported and the second row with the data is imported as expected. (See Host Import Mapping)
When the same script is run from the Client computer, the Excel first row field names are imported and not the second row data. To get the proper result, I have to leave the check box for "Perform without dialog" unchecked and then manually, from the "Import Action" group, check the box for "Don't import first record (contains field names)" to get the proper data imported. (See Client Import Mapping, check box is no longer checked)
Is this caused by a defect in FMP 11? I can't figure out why this is happening.
On windows 7 (VMware on OSX), using FMP17 and Microsoft Access 2016
Trying to do a ODBC import and selecting the datasource, I get asked for Username and password, even if the Access DB is not password protected.
The data sources are correct (tested from Livecode) and should be working without user name and password.
On the properties of the ODBC pane setup the path seems correct (not pointing to 32): %windir%\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe
What am I missing?

I'm a beginner in FM, and i'm trying to develop a solution that allows me to import data from a csv file. I have two related tables Customer ("parent") and Alerts ("child"), each one has a primary key and the Alerts table has a foreign key to conect with the Customer table. I have to populated the alerts table from a cvs file that could have lots of records so I want to relate this new data to the right customers automatically when i import it, the new data does not have a field with the customer ID (primay key) only has its name. Could you please give me any advice with that?
I've attached two files. The first one is INVOICE, that is generated by every establishment when you purchase, and is in xml format.
The second one is XSLT file, that is provided by government fiscal institution and is used to "translate" xml.
PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: when I try to decode xml using attached xslt scheme on any online xml-converter website the output looks fine. BUT when importing to Filemaker, I receive an error: "XML parsing error: invalid document structure".
I would appreciate any help with the issue. Thanks.
Hi - I'm developing a business solution to be hosted on FM Server. It will be hosted on Soliant Cloud. This is my first time developing for Server. I read Steven and Wim's whitepaper on FM 16 security, which was very helpful.
In the past, when I've created upgrades to my solution, I've imported data from the previous version into the new one. Each update is a modified version of the previous file.
I read about the benefits of using File Access Protection. My solution is a single file solution so I can basically exclude any other file having access - except I'm not sure what impact that will have on import from previous versions. I assume both files will have the same ID - but not sure if that means that FM will see the older version as trusted or not.
