    Importing records from one file to another… on iOS

    bright_guy

      Hi,

       

      Is it possible to import records from one file to another, if both files are local FMP files on an iOS device?

       

      The FileMaker Go Development Guide says you can:

      - import from a remote source into a local database

      - import from a local source into a remote database

      - import from a remote source into a remote database

      - import from a local source into a local database

       

      For this discussion, the forth one is relevant.

       

      My attempts to "import from a local source into a local database" have all failed. I get Error Code 3, "Command is unavailable (for example, wrong operating system, wrong mode, etc.)."

       

      To illustrate my point, I created a prototype file, which is available here:

      fmp://216.27.95.53/LDC%20Hosted%20Prototypes.fmp12

       

      Please feel free to download the file and pick it apart, and tell me what you think. What am I doing wrong?

       

      Thanks,

      =L=
