    Importing data to a specific field



      Importing data to a specific field


      Hi I'm using filemaker Pro 10.03 on windows xp.

      Does anyone know if it is possible to import data from a .txt or .xls file to a specified feild?

      I've created a batch file to export the result of a ping to an .xls file and would like to use those results to set a flag within a record.

      is there any way of doing this?

          Easily done.

          1. Go to a layout where the layout's table in Layout Setup... refers to the table where you've defined your field.
          2. Select Import records
          3. Specify the file type and select the file for import
          4. You'll get a dialog that allows you to match up the column of data in your file with the field you want to receive the data.
