How to avoid duplicates when importing data into FileMakerPro 10
Posted on 2014-12-01
I want to import data into FileMaker Pro 10.
Some of the data may already have matching records.
Some may have partial matches (names but no addresses).
Some will have no match.
How do I get all of the data in without duplicating existing records.
Should I do 3 seperate imports using each of the radio buttons ?
• add new records from the source file
• update records with information from the source file
• update matching records with information from the source file
Or will one of these buttons take care of all of the records?
