Importing container contents

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to consolidate several databases into one by importing the filemaker files themselves. It's working mostly, but there's one problem: The containern field contents aren't getting imported. The container fields are ending up empty. (They should have various documents in them as objects)

How do you import container field contents? I understand that if I was exporting to text-based formats like .tab, .xml etc they would get thrown out for obvious reasons, but why are they getting thrown out when importing the filemaker files themselves? Are there any export formats that will allow exporting/importing cotainer field contents?

Are the files linked or embedded in the container fields?

I right-click on the field in browse mode, and click "insert object". I'm pretty sure it's embedded, since changing the file afterwards doesn't affect it in filemaker.
