Thank you for your post.
If you only want to add records that are not in the main file, then you may want to perform a lookup into the host file to see if the ID exists. Find only those records where the ID does not exist, and then perform an import from the host file, as it will only import the found set of records.
For more information about importing, see pages 8-9 of the FileMaker Go Development Guide, and specifically Example 2 on page 9:
Thank you so much that worked I was able to import records both ways as needed. I am trying to do a pop up diologe box now and have never done one and I want it to display the number of records that were imported. I was thinking I could count the number of records before the import and after the import and display the differnce can I do this?
Thank you so much for your help
After importing records, you will find that only those records that were imported are in the Found set. Therefore, you could use "Get (FoundCount)" function to retrieve the number of records that were just imported.
If you are performing multiple imports, and you want to get the total number of records imported, then you may want to use "Get (TotalRecordCount)" to get the difference between the starting count and the ending count.
