    Scripting to import tables with records

    avallejo

      Hi all.

       

      Is there a way to script something like:

       

      Go to file X

      Copy all tables with all its records

      Paste them to file Y

      Get me a cup of coffee

       

      ok, forget about the last line   ...any examples? I can import tables, but they come empty...

       

      best, Andre

          Import records can do this in a script. If a table does not already exist to receive the imported data, you can specify the "New" option and have it create a new table as part of the import.

           

          But without developer follow up, there are severe limits as to what you can then do with such a "created on the fly" table in FileMaker.
