Summary

Import update matching records issue

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12

Operating system version

Mac x.7

Description of the issue

We load data to filemaker all of the time and 'update matching records' based on a key.
The first import of the year however is not an update matching records, it is just add records. (we start fresh annually). Filemaker 12 TURNS OFF the import arrow for the key field on the first import. I have verified that filemaker 11 did this properly and imported the key field on the first import.

Workaround

Catch the error and turn on the import for the key field on the first import.
