    CSV flat file to relational FM database -  Is there a third party plugin/software that would take care of that?

    wilma2017

      I am not filemaker expert, I am not even sure I would be a novice, I am just an end user that has gotten stuck with the FM database without help. I have received help here once before and it was awesome! My question, since there are so many of us end users out there without real knowledge, is there a software that could assist in importing a flat file, like an excel file that would allow me to populate all the fields in my database?

      The database was a solution I purchased and the developer will not help, without paying $250/hr. I have, at times, large excel files with first name, last name, company name, and email, phone.

      I can import the first name, last name but not the email and phone of course since it doesn't relate to the different tables.

      Is there a software that can help me import this into the proper tables? Is there a script?

      I don't have the knowledge or the time to create anything to import these files, they happen infrequently but I need to find something since the excel files are usually fairly large.

       

      Thanks in advance!
