      How to import or copy and paste a MS Word table into FileMaker

      Post

           Hi!

           Isn't is possible to copy and paste a MS Word table into FileMaker?

           I have a two-column table with 1.570 lines. When I try to paste the table into FileMaker, all the content goes into the same field.

           I'm used to Lotus Approach. When you paste a MS Word table into Approach, it automatically creates new lines (records).

               You cannot paste into multiple fields/records of FileMaker from a single paste action.

               You could save the data as a text file and use import records to import the data into your file.

               You may be able to paste the copied text into a single (probably global) text field and then a script can parse the data from this text field into individiual fields/records.

               Given the 1 thousand plus lines in your table, I'd try the import records aproach.
