shortcuts from Excel to Filemaker?

Post

Hi, 

 

At work we use PDA's with Pocket Excel to take data.  I am wondering if there is a way to create shortcuts in Filemaker as to save time using the PDA.. so for example...if I enter "1" into Excel that would translate to "House" when it gets imported into Filemaker.  Basically I am trying to save time at the PDA.  There is a set number of "full name" options, maybe 12 or so...so I am hoping there is a way I can just enter the numbers 1-12 on the PDA and have that show up as the full name when imported into Filemaker.  I hope that makes sense

 

thanks
