Importing data from another fm file (n00b question)


Hey guys,

I'm VERY new to filemaker having had a project dumped on me at work. I've a few questions which may seem really basic for some of you guys. Please be gentle, I'm new wink.

I've two filemaker files. (I'll call them 'A' and 'B'). 'A' is the my main db. 'B' is a series of files that I want to import into A (probably daily). I am assuming they have different field names - so A will have a field like Location and B would have something like geoLocation but they're essentially the same thing.

Is there a way to 'map' specific fields from 'B' on to 'A' and import the data??
