Trouble copying text from a file using Apple's text edit to a FileMaker Field
It might be the program I'm running to distribute the information to a bunch of new records (and it probably is). When I I copy a file containing the information on 100 records (of 901 kiloBytes) into a FileMaker field the program stops at records 50 - 60 (never the same twice). I copy a file containing 1000 records of 3.4 megaBytes and the program stops at record 105, for a file of 500 records it stops after 200 or so cards.
Has anyone had a problem like this? Is there another way to tranfer the contents of a file into Filemaker.
There are no global variables in any of my programs
A very similar program worked quite nicely with another set of 20000 records (which were smaller).
Import Records can import the contents of a text file into fields/records in FileMaker, but the format of the text and what you want to do with it will determine how successfull that approach might be.
