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.
I just upgraded my Mac OS to Mojave (10.14.4). I am running FMP Advanced 11.0v4, and my databases are in FP7 format (due to a legacy system at work.) I now have a repeatable "glitch" where if I perform a find in a database and there are no records that come up as results (i.e., no records match the find), regardless which choice I make next (Cancel or Modify Find), the app quits and I keep getting the window to send the issue to Apple. I can immediately re-open the database, though usually the last 2-3 changes I made weren't saved. Other than the obvious option of upgrading the app, does anyone know of a workaround for this? Thanks in advanc.

After my Windows 10 based Filemaker Pro 11 MarinaPro Solution is launched (Path = C:/MarinaPro/Marina.fp7), I need to create a variable ($$source = filewin:/C:/MarinaPro/ResScheduler/) to a revised default "Open File" path. Because I need to select from several reservation request attachment Excel .csv files, placed in the ResScheduler directory by an Outlook 2010 Macro, my "Import Records" script is set with an "unspecified" data source.
When my script is activated with Error Capture "Off", I get the obligatory Filemaker Pro Error message, "The file <unknown> could not be found..." and the "Open File window is still set to "Look in: "MarinaPro" (Default). And, of course with Error Capture "On" there is no Open File window presented.
I have to manually select and import the first Excel.csv file before the default directory becomes "ResScheduler".
I want my default "Open File" "Look in:" directory changed from "MarinaPro" to "ResScheduler" before I open the first Excel.csv file.
Is there a way, nothing I have tried is working.
I've updated my computer from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro. My FileMaker Pro Advanced 11 does not launch. I get the message "The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect." What's the solution for this issue?
Update: I clicked on an fp7 file, and then Windows asked me to insert the FileMaker CD, which I did. Some files were quickly copied over, and everything works fine now!
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?
