FileMaker Go Self Import  - Import from one table to another table - same file?

Post

I need to update some tables on iPads to complete a syncing process. All one direction down from the server to the iPad. It can be 30,000+ records at a time so I thought it would be better to download and place them in a temp table and then import them afterwards to the target table, then delete the temp.  This works fine with the file on my pc but fails to work on the iPad. Is it not normal to do this type of self-import in FileMaker? Is there a method to identify the local table more precisely for the iPad clients?

 

Thanks
