Duplicating Parent and Children and Grandchildren Using Import: Skipped Records Issue?

Hi There!


I've studied the various ways of duplicating the entire set of records in the parent/child/grandchild chain, and the import process strikes me as the most simple and reliable method. One problem: Filemaker will skip the import of records which are accessed by another user at the time the script is executed.


Is there any way to override this, so that accessed records are not skipped?


If not, is there an alternative workaround?


The only way I can think to get around this is to keep users out of the record to be duplicated by limiting access to that record to only one user; this is feasible for the current solution, because the users will be assigned "batches" of database records that only a single designated user should be working on in any case. But I'd rather not go through the trouble of structuring the solution this way.


Thanks in advance for your help!!!
