Importing Script


Back a year or so ago I wrote a database on FileMaker Pro 7 and used it quite a bit.  Lately I"ve been updating the database in FileMaker Pro 10, have made lots of changes and I would like to import the data from the old database to the new one.  I've been toying with trying to do an import script but I really don't know what I'm doing.  I add the "Import Records" to the script, but don't know what to put in the "Specifi Data Source". In "File Type" I have "All Files (*.*).  Since the data that I want to import is on another computer, I did not click on "Add Files" for the script. In the "Specifi Import Order", I've gone to each layout for the target, Arranged by: matching names, Charecter Set is: Windows (ANSI) and the "Import Action" is on "Add New Records" and then on the next Import Records, I've added the portal for the target.


Assuming that I'm doing this correctly, I don't know how to run it to import the information from the other database.


Can you help me try to set this up to run properly?


Thank you.
