Anomaly?  Appleworks to Filemaker Pro


     I export my database using ASCII.  I created new fields in Filemaker Pro using the same names as the source fields in Appleworks.  Two of the source fields do not show up from the original database.  The same two.  While the others show up, I've had to change the order of import to correctly match the fields.  That's not a big deal.  But the missing two fields show up in every record and I'll need the information to be included in the new database.  The database is over five years old and cutting and pasting those two field's enclosed information is a very big obstacle.  Why would fields not show up in the ascii file?  Thanks you.
