New Import Field Mapping Dialog Box Tutorial

FileMaker 18

Easily map imported source data to FileMaker fields using the new Import Field Mapping dialog box.  Use type ahead instead of drag and drop for greater efficiency.  And specify custom delimiters when importing certain file types.


Why is this important?

Be more productive and save time by using data from the other applications and services you use without having to rekey it in again.  Supported data types include .CSV, Tab, XML, ODBC, and Microsoft Excel files.



  • Choose target fields in your FileMaker solution that you can search
  • Designate any record in the data you are importing from to use as field names
  • For each target field, choose whether to perform auto-enter options when importing
  • Import data that uses a custom character to operate field values.
