Importing to a chosen table

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've got a database with three tables. When I try to import records from a Tab delimited text file using the File|Import menu, it always goes to a certain table and doesn't give me the chioce to choose a different table. Oddly, when I set up a script to import, it lets me choose any of the three tables. This happens no matter what layout is selected.

I must be doing something stupid, what do you think it is?

Thanks,

Jerry

I am having a little bit of the same problem when I import from another fp.7 file. The import does not go smoothly. It appears to be a question of the "Related Files" issue in the "Define Database" action. If you find anything good let me Know.

I Finally found out the problem here. It is in the built in "HELP" File. There is a small note which states that when importing into a File with multiple tables, a layout with the fields into which you wish to import must be chosen first!! You would think Filemaker would Highlight a major change like that in their index and in the differences section !!!!
