Title

importing xlsx into FMP10 results in all blank fields

Post

I converted an Access database with 8700+ records to Excel. The spreadsheet works well and contains all the Access data. When I drop the xlsx spreadsheet onto the FM icon to import it into FM, the processs seems to proceed normally but the result is a blank FileMaker database. All fields are empty except the top row which contain substiture field names (f1, f2, etc). The blank FM database is 8771 records long, just like my Excel spreadsheet. This happens no matter what options I choose for conversion.

 

I'm using the Trial Version of FMP 10.0 v1 on a Vista machine.

 

Any suggestions?
