Hi !

I would also appreciate this kind of solution. There is a big Excel -file containing personnel information which is updated regularly. I cannot force them to abandon Excel and change to FileMaker, but I need that updated information in a FileMaker solution.

So can an Excel file be used somehow directly as an external data source ?

You could set up the Excel file as an ODBC data source. You may also want to check out the recurring import feature (requires FileMaker 11).
