Import from a local filemaker file to server

Post

     Hi,

     I've got a filemaker databse hosted by server, of which I have an identical copy on an ipad using filemaker Go.

     I have written a script to import data from the local database to the main server copy. I'm using the import records function, as detailed in http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/7787/~/importing-to-and-from-a-transferred-file, part 2.

     It works just fine, using the matching records to update my fields.

     I`d like to however make it that it only updates a certain field IF it's empty, but that otherwise it does not overwrite data which is already on the server.

     Any way to do this?

      

     Thanks,
