      exporting csv file with headers

      Post

      Hi,

      I 'm trying to get FM to export a .csv file with some fields that pertain to contact details (name, phone, email, etc), in order to be used for import in Gmail contacts. The structure of the .csv requires a number of headers.

      Is there anyway of doing this in FM pro without having to create a dummy record to be used as the first one?

      thanks

          If the header is your field names as defined in the FileMaker table, then you can use a Merge file export.

          If it is other data, then you need the dummy record. To keep your data in it's current table "clean" you might import the data into an intermediary table with the dummy record(s) added to the intermediary table, then export to CSV.
