      Moving records from several tables in an import script.  How?

      Post

      Hi,

       

      I have a solution that is a runtime - and I have updated the file a couple of times.  I want to be able to give an existing  user a new file, have them click a button, and get the existing records moved over to the new file.

       

      I am a little confused since I don't know how to have Filemaker make the choices available in the Import dialog box, or how it finds the file to import from (Mac and PC)

       

      Also, it seems to me that the new file will import only from the table it is in, which would mean moving from table to table, and importing from each one.  Not all the tables are accessible by the user, so I am assuming that this could only be scripted.

       

      I asked this question in a forum before, and the answer seemed to be very complicated. I was wondering, having bought FM 10 Advanced, if there was an idiot proof way of doing this.  :smileyhappy:

       

      Trust me when I say, any explanation would need to be spelled out in simple terms.  Thank you very much.
