    Automatically Re-Mapping <Field Missing> fields

    obatics

      Hi

       

      I'm hoping you can help me.

       

      I am trying to migrate the data from a FileMaker pro database to MySQL, but keep FileMaker as the front-end. I am trying to either avoid having to re-map the calculation, global & summary fields or find an easy way to do the remap.

       

      Just to explain the re-mapping problem... If you are linked to a database and you delete a field from the data source, it becomes <Field Missing> in the front-end. I want to add back in a new field which would be a calculation, field or summary, and will automatically link to the <Field Missing> without having to re-link it.

       

      Thanks for any help

       

      Best Regards

       

      Chris
