    New records and links



      New records and links


           Hi, I do not use FileMaker and hasitating btw. Access, FM and Openoffice Base.

           I would like to ask if it is possible to insert more new records at the same time.

           For example I have an existing database but I would like to give 100+ more elements into the database. How can I add these records? Is that possible to see the simple Tables behind the UI Format and just insert the rows that were copied from Excel table?

           As well as Can I add hyperlinks for each records that could open the folder of the record. For example I have photos as records and I would like to click on a photo or a hyperlink text and FileMaker just open the folder where the file is situated?

               You can certainly import that data from an excel file or even drag and drop that file onto your FIleMaker app to produce a filemaker file converted from the Excel file.

               You can test these options for free if you download the 30 day free trial copy of FileMaker from FileMaker's web site.
