Title

Importing fixed width file problem

Post

Hello,

I am importing a fixed width file into one field ('big field') and then defing each field as an auto calc, for example, Field A (middle, 20, 30). (as described here: http://filemakertoday.com/com/showthread.php/15658-Importing-a-fixed-width-document )

The import results in 65 records complete records but 46 records have incomplete data. Many fields are empty. The data is there in the original file. I just do not see what is wrong and have not been able to solve this. The auto calc is not the problem. The data is not there in 'big field'.  

Any ideas? 

thank you
