Deleting unused fields

Question asked by HB on Mar 16, 2017

I just deleted a qty of unused fields (fields I don't need any more - many are calc or summary fields and may be in import scripts) from various tables in various files that are no longer needed. Now it seems that this action has screwed up my scripted imports, as the field matching has changed in these imports.

 

1. Is that possible?

2. Is it avoidable?

3. Wouldn't it be nice if Filemaker at least warned us when deleting that imports would probably be effected?

4. If I find the fields from a backup, would importing them guarantee the imports will work?

 

Thanks in advance!
