Title

importing to multiple tables

Post

I'm just getting started with FM and could use some help.  Can someone point me in the correct direction.  I need to import sales orders into my filemaker DB.  The sales order in my FM DB consits of a Header table and an Order Lines table.  My text file from the external device capturing the sales order can be coded to identify what is a Header record and what is an Order Line record.  For example I can make a Header record begin with H and a Order Line record begin with L.  The records for both tables will contain the key for the Order table to tie the lines and header together.   Could a script allow me to import multiple tables and identify what records go to what tables?  A couple of hints to get me started would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.
