I am trying to run a server sided script that will import a found set. The server sided script opens a handler file that opens data file 1, does the find, imports into data file 2.
However, the search works in script debugger but imports all records.
The script opens layout A, searches goes to layout b, imports. Also the import of the selected fields seems not be remembered. I am stuck.....

using FM18v3 I defined an import, update using key with option :add remaining.
Odd enough, when running the import for the first time, the key field remains empty. (Unexpected)
As a result the second time I run the script I get new records, but now the keyfieldfield is filled. (Expected) The third time the import also runs as expected ( no new records ).
I fixed this by defining this script in FM18 using an if. Eventually, I launched FM17 and re-did the script. Now it works like it should.
Anyone else can replicate this?
I find in an old drives some fmp5 files. To open them in FMP18 I need to convert them first to FMP7.
I have an old version of FMP7 however each time I install it the app crashes telling me the installer was modified with another version and crashes.
I tried to download from the Filemaker site the trial version but I can't find it ... any help?
I am attempting to import 60 records from a CSV file. There are 4 fields per record: First Name, Last Name, Email and Source.
When I choose Import Records... > File... from the File menu, everything looks good, 4 data points point to the correct field names: arrow icon "Import this field" but the rest are the double dots icon, "Don't import this field," and when I click on the Import button only the first record is imported.
I don't use Filemaker frequently enough to remember everything but when I need it, I really need it. I do not remember having to go thru and changing every icon in the Import dialog to import this field, I thought that was automatic.
I there something missing in the CSV file? I can reprocess that if required. Having to indicate to import for every record will be tedious.
Thanks in advance for any help.
