Concatenating fields on import

I believe you would need to import the 2 fields and set up the address field as a calc.

I have a program that grabs address info from web pages and documents and I need to Concatenate the company name + the zip code to create a unique comapnyid filed. I found it easier to do it on the excel side.

=CONCATENATE(LEFT(A2,5),LEFT(L2,5))

Of course you would have to play with that calc to allow for a "," and spaces.

So, you could set up a column in excel named address and concatenate the fields. They will copy over into FM with no problems.

However, I must say that if you are looking to format the address onto 2 lines Keith's' way is probably better.
