Data Import Method
Our membership database has been outsourced and now resides on the internet - it will no longer be maintained with filemaker. However, there are still a few procedures that will stay in filemaker that need to know if the name being entered is a current member. Current members can be downloaded into an Excel spreadsheet. Is setting up a recurring import the best way to go to get the member data into filemaker? I have read that this process creates a new file - does it create a new file every time you do the import? Can I disconnect the functionality that does the import every time Filemaker is opened, and just let the user run the script that is created from the button that is also created?
