Import Bug fixed in FMP 12?
There's a long standing bug report: Data loss bug : Spontaneous and erroneous import matching of new fields in specified imports !
As far as I can tell with a few simple tests with Fmp12 on Windows XP, This bug appears to be fixed. Can anywone from FileMaker confirm? Can any Mac users test this one and confirm or deny?
I tested this by setting up an import records script that imported records from a source table into a target table in the same file. I then added a number of new fields to both tables and tested the script and examined the field mapping stored with the script step.
The field mapping appears correct and the script imported correctly.
Phil, did you ever get confirmation from others on this? I thought I remembered hearing that FileMaker 12 fixed it, but want to be sure.
