      having trouble importing from excel...

      Post

      I'm using windows vista & Filemaker 11...

       

      I'm trying to import an excel file I created from my access database. When I import, all I get is columns of letters or numbers instead of the text I'm expecting. I've tried tab delimited & that is worse...& I've checked the Excel file & the data is there?

       

      I'm only at the initial stage with Filemaker, so maybe I'm missing something...

       

      thanks Adrian

          You have something odd going on here. Filemaker generally does a decent job of importing from Excel  files.

           

          Can you post an example?

           

          Describe one row from the excel file and then describe what that one row looks like in filemaker after the import. (You might even, as a test, try taking a copy of your excel file and delete all but one row, then import it to see what happens.)
