Can you describe exactly what you are doing when you import the data? There are a lot of different options that you may or may not have specified. This sounds like you did a drag and drop to import instead of selecting Import Records from the File Menu.
I am not using the drag and drop method. I used the IMPORT FILE method. But I have a new problem. My data shows up in all views but the FULL RECORD LAYOUT. The only way I can actually see the data is to click on each individual field. After I let go of the mouse it goes blank again, and in no case can I see the full record's data all at once when I am in FULL RECORD LAYOUT.
