This works in FileMaker Pro Advanced only. Part of the benefit of upgrading. (You can also import tables from one place to another.)
Short answer to your question is Yes. Suggest you create a Table with the needed fields and just copy/duplicate the table as needed. Some developers have a database with core tables and just import the table into the project they are working on.
If you are new to FMP I suggest that you download the Filemaker Training Series (Basic version is free) Database Skills, FileMaker Pro Training | FileMaker
I highly suggest that you take the time to read the above tutorial. Pay close attention to relationships and database design.
Thanks for the quick response Mike - much appreciated.
