WebDirect Clients Cannot Import FileMaker Pro Records From/To Itself?

Your post

     Sometimes, it is useful to be able to import records internally from one FileMaker Pro table to another. In FileMaker Server 13, this works for FMP clients, but not for WebDirect clients: regardless of the settings on the Import Records step, WebDirect clients are always prompted to enter certain types of files (xls, etc.)

     To see for yourself, run my Test Import file.

     Do you see the problem? Is there a workaround?
