      DIRECT DOWNLOAD (LARGE, MESSY, not so clean FM3 that auto converted to FM11 DIRECT DOWNLOAD)
      http://www.filedropper.com/2010filmtvmusicguidecopy (for downloading/viewing)

      What I would like it to look like: So I suppose the question is, do I reconvert into excel, or do I keep as is and somehow find a way to convert the 6000+ contact file and want to know  how to get the auto converted FMP11 file into the nice looking one (see below as it looks much cleaner).

      I know the FIELD NAMES are different, so I cannot just import. However, I need to and want to have the large 6000+ file look like the small one as the large one, as is, is very hard to navigate and does NOT LOOK CLEAN and looks messy and looks nothing like the smaller file that we with the help of some of you had done If you Download the first link above, then the second, you will see what I mean. Which is just Music Supervisors and some Managers.  

      Type 1 (supoosed to be regular link whereas version 1 above is supposed to be emmeded.

      This is what I want the above to look like and need a starting point so I can start to grasp this. TO make matters a bit worse, I have not used FMP 11 in a programming manner for about 3 months, so it may take me some time to  my-chops together. Names, key commands, short cuuts, et-cetera.

      All I want is the LARGE file to look like the older one.

      Thank you so much.

      And any help, reminders, shortcuts, perhaps a list of short cuts somewhere, et-cetera, very much appreciated!

      Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!
