Hello,

 

Is it possible to import field names (from Excel) into an existing FM database?

 

I previously imported field names from an Excel worksheet (File – Open – select Excel file – select worksheet – select ‘Field names’ from first row option panel – and FM converts file into an FM database). I would like to add new field names without having to type them in manually, however I cannot use the same method (FM writes over my previously imported field names). Is it possible to import additional field names from an Excel worksheet into an existing FM database? (Using FM Pro 13 / OS Windows 7)

 

Thank you!

No. When you import into a new table, Filemaker will create the table and the necessary fields. If you're importing into an existing table, no schema changes will be made as a result of the import.
