Auto enter data (on import) also happens with all New records

Post

I use the file name of an excel spreadsheet as the auto enter DATA for records I am importing from the Excel file into Filemaker Pro. All is well.
However, when I later create a NEW record in the same database, the auto enter DATA (in this case the file name of the Excel file) still populates the field...even though I am NOT importing. It confuses the accuracy of our Find for that particular excel filename because any new records entered also carry the same 'data'.
What am I doing wrong?
The only way I can see to stop that 'data' from auto entering with each new record is to erase it from the data desciption box in the auto enter menu? That can't be right?
