FileMaker Product(s) involved:FileMaker Pro Advanced 10.0v3 Operating System(s) involved:Mac OS X 10.5.8This does not happen in v2.  Detailed description of the issue:In a scrip, when I try to use Import Records to update a matching record, the first time I press OK and then Import, the step turns to Add and not Update matching. Exact steps to reproduce the issue:1.  Create two tables related with a key field.2.  Create a script to update the second table using the key field as a matching field, using the Import Records script step.3.  Click OK and then Import.4.  You will notice that the script step appears like this:Import Records [No dialog; "filename"; Add; Mac Roman]5.  Again, click "Specify import order". The matching field signal has gone and the "Import Action" shows "Add new records" marked. Expected Result:Should be:Import Records [No dialog; "filename"; Update matching; Mac Roman] Actual Result:No matching records are updated. Exact text of any error message(s) that appeared:N/A Any additional configuration information/troubleshooting that is relevant to the issue:1.  Used to work fine before updating to version v3.2.
