Excel Import to FMP Adv Failing to Match Fields?

Recommended Posts

I know it's me... but can't find where I'm going wrong.

I'm importing a couple of fields from Excel into FMP 11 Adv based on matching contract numbers... which I've done countless times with no issues.

In summary, Find all files; File; Import Records; File Open; Update matching Records in found set; Match fields (=); Import this field; Import...

For some reason the import is now failing, which I'm guessing is due to a problem with the match fields, but I don't know why there is a problem or how to fix it.

Any shoves in the right troubleshooting direction would be appreciated.

The best way to import from spreadsheet to Filemaker pro is to create a script if same is being done regularly.
