Title

Moving tables between files without importing the data with FileMaker Pro Advanced

Post

I am attempting to move a table from one file to another WITHOUT THE DATA by using the following steps:

 

  • Open 2 files simultaneously.  (Each file opened in FileMaker Pro Advanced)
  • In Manage Database Dialog in tables tab from the file which to copy, I choose edit > copy
  • Then navigate to target file's Manage Database dialog and choose edit > paste

 

This works although when I go to layout mode and apply the copied table and view in Browse mode, each record displays <unrelated data>  as opposed to the target files data. 

 

Any sugggestions?   (I do not want the data just the table structure to load the other files data in.)

 

Thank You.
