COPYING RECORDS FROM ONE DATABASE TO ANOTHER

Post

I wanted to avoid retyping a client's data from last year.

 

Simple need, right? Well, I managed to wipe out my 2010 invoice database.

 

By trying to import one **bleep** record from my 2009 to 2010 I managed to wipe out all my 2010 records.

 

I exported what I thought was a single record as FileMaker Pro format and named it.

 

I imported that into my cirrent database.

 

Guys... I am not a newbie, but I couldn;t find a simple way to do it. I should not have to hit the manual for this.

 

After all these years, does anyone test what real users need here?
