      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.
