Summary

Copying Tab delimited Text into a table or other table like setup

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

11 advanced

Operating system version

Mac 10.5 or 10.6

Description of the issue

Is there any way to paste tab delimited text into either a table layout or portal structure and have the data go into separate fields similar to the functionality of pasting data into excel and have the data go to separate cells based on tabs and returns?  Or moving columns in something set up in form view.

My mind is saying no.  But I haven't seen everything.

Could something like this be scripted?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

Carolyn
