    Weird, Import from Remote File

    Hudi

      i'm trying to import records from a different table in the same remotely hosted file.

       

      The weird thing is that sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Its not executed from a script or anything, just plain old file>import file.

       

      I paste the filepath and run teh import. It either imports everything or imports 0 records.

       

      I would love to know why if someone else ran into this same thing.

       

       

      Cheers

          Hi Hudi

           

          A quick check - if the file that you are importing from is open, then the import will only bring in the current found set.  So you may need to add a step to your procedure to show all records in the table you want to import from - or at least to find the appropriate records.

           

          A good argument for scripting - you don't have to remember those steps.
