Chapter 19. Importing Data into FileMaker Pro > Using a Script to Import Data

Using a Script to Import Data

Like most other actions in FileMaker Pro, importing data can be triggered from a script. It's possible to save your import settings in a script for later reuse as well.

A scripted import has a few steps and options that are slightly different from the regular File, Import Records method. To import records from within a script, choose the Import Records script step and add it to your script. ScriptMaker gives you several choices, as shown in Figure 19.23.
