Export field matching rant

Every time I have to set up an export or an import, my gut squeezes in frustration. I think the only way that FileMaker will help us out in the woefully inadequate interface, is for everyone at FM to set up 10 exports, each with 500 fields, that do not have matching names. THEN I guess someone will realise what we have to go through. At least in previous versions, we were able to click-drag to de-select fields - now we have to click on each and every field, then drag - which then pushes another around and on and on we go. I realise this post is just a rant, but perhaps if we raise the noise level about it, it might be escalated.

Anyway, now that I have that off my chest, on to more serious things.

Lovely program, that FileMaker, pity about the export thing!
