      Blank fields when importing records

      Post

      We use filemaker as a backup library of information about a directory of freelance journalists we maintain on our website. We have two databases, 'freelance active' for active memberships and 'freelance expired' for expired memberships. Literally over the course of this afternoon, the 'freelance active' database has stopped importing records correctly. We use Textwrangler with a script to format the data for each record, which we then import to the 'freelance active' database using the 'import records' feature. When I try to import records like this now, the resulting record has all fields blank except for one, which is the salutation (eg Mr, Ms etc). Does anyone know why this may be happening and how I can resolve this?

       

      Many thanks
