    Trying to parse text file (started off as a .plist file)



      Trying to parse text file (started off as a .plist file)


      Hey All,


      I am trying to come up with the best way to parse a pretty big text file with data laid out as follows:





       It goes on like that for pages where the Key is the field name and the string is what goes into the field.


      I started off trying to just import it, this failed no matter what I tried. The files starts off as a .plist. I tried simply changing the extension to XML - no go. I tries using a .plist to .xml converter (which did the conversion) but even after that was not able to import it into Filemaker 9.


      I then tried just importing the entire texd file into a single global field, then trying to parse it with a script and have not managed to get too far with that.


      Am I missing something really simple here? There has got to be an easier way to get all this stuff into FMP.
