      Importing data without erasing.

      Post

      I used the "automatic reoccurring import" option  to insert data from a spreadsheet to my filemaker pro database. 

      In addition to the fields that come from the spreadsheet, I have another field that I have added to my target database. Everytime I click the script to to import new data, it erases the info from the extra that I have added. Is there a way to maintain the info from the extra field when importing data from the old field?

          After doing some research, i think I found a better way to explain what I'm trying to do: I'm importing data to an existing filemaker pro database. The database has one more field than the database that is being imported. I want to be able to import data without erasing the info that is in that extra field. Can someone please help.
