Title

Copy/Paste data from Excel to FileMaker and vice-versa

Post

Hi,

 

I tried posting this same message a few hours ago, but it hasn't shown up in the message list, so I'll try again - I hope I'm not double-posting.

 

Here goes:

I would like to be able to select multiple cells within Excel, copy them to the clipboard, and paste them into a FileMaker record so that I can then, at a later time, select the data within FileMaker, copy to the clipboard and paste back into an Excel workbook.  I have had no luck trying to acheive this.  The closest I have come is by creating an Excel object inside the FileMaker record, but the user cannot access the object within the record to paste the data.

 

Can anyone help with this?

Thanks.
