Title

Updating a file

Post

     I keep seeing mention of the possibility of importing from one filemaker file to another within fm go but don't seem to be able to find out much more. 

     Scenario is I have a file on an ipad which has data in, I update my original to add a new button for whatever reason. I know I could drag the file to my MacBook and import the records but I'd love to be able to put  the new file on the ipad and have the user press a button to transfer the old date to the new version. 

     i think I saw a third party solution for this but it costs and was pretty complex. 

     Even the get (filepath) step gives me a huge ipad file name with loads of random text in it. 

     Any thoughts?
