      Custom order not holding for importing or exporting

      Post

      I have a large database with 928 fields and unfortunately when I am importing data (from spss) or exporting data from the database the custom order is not holding. I have selected custom import order in the 'Arrange by' drop down menu, but the target fields are still not in my custom order. This requires me to work with the import field mapping box, which would be fine, except for the database being so large.

      I have also attempted to arrange by field names and although the field names are exactly the same in the Source Fields and Target Fields fmp does not match them when importing or exporting.

            

      Thank you in advance,
