      Excel Import problem when using the Registration Template

      Post

       I just imported in some Event history via Excel. When I go to register a person for that event that I imported, Inserts a field but leaves the fields blank. When making a new event maunally, it works fine. Any ideas what the problem is?

      Thanks in advance. I've been trying to figure this issue out for days.

          Yes, this is a common oops and one that I think FileMaker should provide some documentation inside the starter solutions so that new users can avoid this pitfall.

          You are importing data into a table that requies a unique ID number in order to operate. When you import data from an external source, this field will not recieve the needed ID value unless you click the check box to enable auto-enter options during import.

          The quickest fix is to start with a new copy and re-import with this option selected.
