Import Field Mapping: order of source fields

Post

I am importing felds between two Filemaker databases which do not have matching field names. There are hundreds of fields in one database, 125 in the other. I know I can change the order of the target fields, but the order of the source fields is completely random. I have tried going back to the source database and changing the field order in the "Manage Database" field window (e.g., from creation order to alpha) but this seemingly has no effect on how the fields show up in the Import Field Mapping window of the target database. 

Is there any way to get the Source Fields to list by alpha rather than random order?
