Chapter 19. Importing Data into FileMake... > Importing Multiple Files from a Fold...

Importing Multiple Files from a Folder

FileMaker can import data from several files at once. In this “batch” mode, FileMaker takes the data from a file and imports it into one or more fields in a FileMaker table. FileMaker can also bring in information about each file's name and directory path.

FileMaker can work with two types of data when performing a folder import: image files and text files. In the case of image files, FileMaker can bring the image data from each file into a container field so that each image can be viewed inside FileMaker. In the case of text files, FileMaker brings the entire contents of the file into a specified text field.
