      Importing from Excel first Row not setting the Column Names in FM database

      Post

           I am new to FileMaker PRO so be patient please.

           I am trying to convert an XLSX file to a FM database. Wizard allows you to specify the first row will be used to name the resultant column names. I am having no success with this, on import I am getting the 'default' f1,f2,f3, f4 ..... etc.

           Are there rules/conventions with regard to the format for the content of the column headers etc?

           Thanks in eager anticipation.
