Summary

Import Excel .xlsx into Filemaker 10 on a Mac

Description of the issue

Filemaker 10.0v1 (Mac) Operating System Involved: Mac 10.5.62.4GHz Intel Core Duo 22 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM Filemaker crashes when attempting to import  large Excel .xlsx files. I have attempted several times to import a 67.1mb file (760,000 rows / 21 columns). Filemaker never gets to the point of import; it goes to thefirst importing screen, “Importing From” but never goes beyond that point &eventually crashes. The work around has been to import files no more than100,000 lines.
