    Import value list from old DB to new DB

    hjvanes

      Dear FM PPL,

       

      Apparently it has been around for a while that you FM does not naturally import values from a value list.

       

      I am not sure if other ppl have dealt with this issue themselves.

       

      I need to be able to have not only database records imported from old DB but also the old stored values in the respective value list which users are free to edit and add/delete from as well to suit their own needs.

       

      For example a list of counties to a state.

       

      If a county is added by the user then this needs to be imported to the new DB as well along with other DB records.

       

      Be really great if there is a workaround for this. It is bugging the begeezers out of me.

          As far as I am aware, there is no way to simply import a value list from another file even using FMAdvanced.  If by "old stored values in the respective value list" you mean a value list with custom values, you can certainly cut and paste these to another file, but you have to actually create the list in the new file and then paste the values.
