You'll probably need to execute a script in the hosted file to find all records in the source table before executing the import.
Thanks Mike but I found the solution of my problem. Once I added a table occurence to the Slave of the table in the Master file, imports work and remember the source even after closing the Master file.
I don't understand why it works because the occurence is not linked to anything in my slave. I am not even using it on the import. If anyone can explain why, I would greatly apprciate it.
Because if you put a TO on your graph from the other file, it doesn't really close. It's still open in the background.
Plus, you can now use a layout in your current file to define the found set.
Scenario: Importing records from Slave (local file) to Hosted (Master File)
1. Open the hosted Master File and go to appropriate layout to the table I want to import to
2. Import Records ( add new ) I setup the import to matching names and the appropriate table in the source (slave)
Import works correctly, so I then check "Perform without Dialog" on the import script step and run again. Works. Continues to work as long as the Master file is still open.
If the Master file is not open there is nothing to import into. You have to take explicit control to open the target file so that it will be ready for importing into. This is not the sort of thing that you want to leave to some sort of implicit "I hope this works"
