I suspect that you are closing the file containing the table to be imported, having made the selection, but before running the import.
If I remember correctly, closed files will import all records, whereas open files will only import the current selection.
That's the only reason for your current problem that comes to mind.

Thanks Alan! I am not closing the file that I am importing from and that's why I'm confused on why this is happening. I've been using FileMaker for years and this is the first time I've had this problem.
Alan, I think I found the problem. I was trying to import from one table to another in the same database. I had a "new" window opened to show both tables and tried to import with both windows open. Once I closed the 2nd window, but still kep the "find" for that table, it worked with no problem. I hate that it doesn't work with both windows open thought. Thanks
