Value list import and update

Question asked by gabgabchan on Mar 1, 2019

Hi there,

 

Question 1: Import/convert

I'm wondering if it is possible to import an excel file to become a value list, or perhaps convert an existing table in FileMaker to become a value list. This is for situations when there are many values to be created, and grabbing them from tables is faster than typing it again individually. Or are there any faster/more efficient methods to create value lists?

 

Question 2: Update

I would also like to know if there is a user-friendly (non-developer) way to update value lists. This would enable external users (who are controlling data input only) to create/remove values, without needing the help of a developer to make the changes for them.

 

Thank you!
