I tried it using this script with just two fields in a file containing four records and it works just fine:

Enter Browse Mode []

Show All Records

Go to Layout ("Layout#1")

Import Records [Restore, "danjocoby copy.fp5"]

Layout#1 contains both fields. Is this how you are doing it?

Did you properly set the match fields in the import dialog? If filemaker doesn't know how to match up corresponding records, it will assume that all records are new and will create all new records. The match records are indicated with the double headed arrow, <=> in the import dialog.

Yes, I set a match field. Then, in testing, I imported some records. Next, I imported the EXACT SAME RECORDS, and ended up with duplicates for all of them -- it didn't "update" anything, even though all the info (including info in the "match field") was exactly the same.
