 FileMaker hangs on Import AND recover!
Hi,

I am having some problems importing data into FileMaker Pro v4.
During import the whole computer just hangs.  No warning message,
no Blue Screen of Death.  Everything including the mouse is locked.
The same thing happens when I try to recover my last backup copy.

I've run Norton WinDoctor, Disk Doctor, & Nuts & Bolts.  Everything
seems to be fine.  I'm using Windows 95 B (OSR 2.1) with 32 MB of
memory.

Any suggestions, anyone???

There is no one formula to follow but I found that sometimes the data
can be corrupt. Try to delete all records, create a new record and
import that one, if this will work you will have to test / import each
record separately or in small groups.

Hope this will help!

W.D.

This used to cause me problems too. If you made structural changes to the
destination file, for example if you added or deleted a field or changed its
type, and you use the "Restore import order" or "Last order" option, this
can crash the system.

I think your best bet is to avoid using the "Restore import order" and "Last
order" options. Use "Matching names" or manually align the source and
destination data in the Import Fields window.
