Use (or make) a layout that will show you the keys for your data. (If you have FileMaker Pro Advanced, you could also use the DataViewer.) Compare those in the source file to the those in clone with imported data.
My guess is that you need to change the setting for performing auto-enter options when you import. If you are using FM's auto-enter serial number to create key data, and your records are getting new serial numbers at import, you would see the symptoms you're describing.
Hi Debi -
I am using auto enter when records are created but not choosing auto-enter options on import. What your saying makes sense to me though. I'll pursue it and see if there is something I'm missiing. You response indicates that I should be able to do this which is also good information. I wasn't even sure it was do-able.
Thanks, and when I figure it out I'll let you know,
