Title

Match Field

Post

     I am brand new to FMP so please be patient with me.  I'm trying to import data from fields in one database to a second using lookup to find related entries in both. (I'm trying to get the address from db1 to db2, both have first name and last name that I will compare to figure out which to transfer)  I'm trying to create a "match field" based upon a support article I found [http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5244/kw/lookup%20values] using the calculated value outlined (FullName (calculation, text result)=FirstName & "^" & LastName).  But after defining the field nothing happens.  Do I need to do something to populate the field?

     Thanks in advance for any help you can provide
