Replacing and Updating Data with Match Fields

The direct importing of data described in the preceding section is the most basic and straightforward. You can also use the Import command to replace and update data in FileMaker.

To replace data in your FileMaker database, use the Replace Import action rather than the Add action. The number of records in the imported file should match the number of records in the found set. For each record, the data that you have mapped will be placed in the FileMaker record; existing data in that record will be untouched.
