      Trouble copying text from a file using Apple's text edit to a FileMaker Field

      Post

           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).
