Newbies simonlewin Posted January 19, 2005 Newbies Share Posted January 19, 2005 Just found this forum - what a great place! I wonder if anyone can help? Excuse me if this is a really simple question - I'm relatively new to FileMaker. I'm building a website and for part of this I need to create about 150 simple pages, each one listing a different business. I'ts a one off job that doesn't need a 'live' database online or anything complicated like that. I'll receive the database in a spreadsheet format and have no problems getting this into FileMaker. To makemy life a little simpler I thought that I could simply add some need fields to the database, so that I can add little bits of HTML code before and after each field, i.e. <h1> Business name field <h2> I can then export this as a text file and just copy and paste the entries into a simple HTML template. I've had no problem adding the new fields and have tested the exporting idea. The problem is getting the auto-filled data into the existing records? In my initial tests it seems that once I've created the auto-filling fields, it adds the data for newly created records - but not for the existing 150 records I've imported. Am I missing something really simple? Many thanks! Simon Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
