Importing Bento 4 into FMP 11?


After my Appleworks database burst at the seams, I grudgingly migrated to Bento 3, upgraded to 4, but the layout possibilities were still so clumsy that I've bought FMP 11.0v3. I'm using Mac OS 10.5.8 (no idea which cat that is! :) on a 1.6 GHz PowerPC G5.

Trouble is, I can't import my data. Merely trying to select "Bento Data Source" as the 'type' dismisses the dialogue box instantly with no further action. I've tried exporting my data from Bento to a tab-delimited file, and importing that, which works up to a point but doesn't import all the fields. The fields are all there in the tab file, but in FMP I only get the first 80 or so.

Any ideas?
