FileMaker Pro

Description of the issue

When I ask Filemaker to open a .xls file, I will only get 255 records, where the excel file has substantially more data than that. Is there a limit?

Steps to reproduce the problem

Open Filemaker 10
Browse files
Click on button to show excel files
select .xls file
See (very briefly) progress bar
File opens with 255 records. .xls file has 6650 lines

6650 records

Actual result

255 records

Open in BBEdit and verify contents.
Save as tab delimited.
Open in Filemaker
