One of potential customer who wants to migrate Access to FileMaker started to process by moving tables. An excel file format is used for migration.


But we see some excel files can not be converted (or imported as a table). The FileMaker Pro Advanced is crashes immediately when we try to import as a new table.


We get the error message on Mac, but Windows version is just crashed. Importing empty table is not sense, may be user only wants importing field definitions. It is not so important. But this behaviour, crashing while importing, is not a good prestige for FileMaker. Especially for the new ones start using FileMaker.
