We do a download of information on a weekly basis and the initial download involves time consuming mapping. Why does Filemaker not save the mapping options? We have three users sharing a database on a network. Two must open by "remote access."
The import mapping is saved individually with each user who opens the file. If you want the mapping options to remain the same for each user, then create an Import script. That way, the host and two other users can have the same import mapping option.
