I can confirm that those are the results you get. I hadn't encountered that "gotcha" before I replicated your import on my XP system and it's unfortunate that FileMaker is not consistant here.
You can detect cases where this has happened pretty easily with the ValueCount function though.
If ( ValueCount ( Containerfield ) = 1 ; Getvalue ( ContainerField ; 1 ) ; Getvalue ( ContainerField ; 3 ) )
Is one such calculation that will adjust for the format of the text in the container field in order to extract the file path.
BTW, there's a free updater you can download to update your system to 11.0v3.
Thanks for the reply Phil.
Great suggestion re valuecount formula, I will give it a shot.
RE the upgrade... my PC is used at two workplaces and one of them does not wish to update FM for some reason unknown to me.
You might point out to them that a) the fix corrects bugs that exist in v1 and b) it does not cost them anything to do this.
