      Importing and syncing data to cloned database

      Post

      Hello,

       

      I’m relatively new to using FileMaker and I have a question about syncing and transferring data using FM Pro 10v. We are developing offline and we will need to import updated data from the production database that is maintained on the server. 

       

      Is there a migration tool that will allow me to easily bring in all of the data to a cloned database?

       

      I’m aware of a brute force method of copying one table at a time and manually resetting auto-generated fields (http://sixfriedrice.com/wp/importing-records-to-a-backup-brute-force/)  But this article was published was nearly 2 years ago; has there been a more efficient method developed since? 

       

      Any advice is appreciated!
