Filemaker Go importing

Hi all,


Is it at all possible to import records from a filemaker DB on go with another database on Go. For example, can I email my DB to a customer and can they open that database and import the information from it to an existing DB on their iphone using Go?


I know you cannot import CSV files and the like, but I have done a lot of reading and supposedly you can import records into Go as long as it is from another filemaker DB. Most of the items I have been reading relate to importing from a remote source, but I want to import locally. As in, on the same device.


I have tried several ways to set a variable:


$file; Value: get(documentspath) & "source.fmp12"

Import Records [No dialog; "$file"; Add; Windows ANSI]


When I try running the script on the import file, I get an error saying that the file could not be opened. I have searched for hours and cannot see what mistake I am making.
