    Unhappy Unanswered: transferring records from file to file

    I'm having problems creating a simple script that copies (transfers) a record from (X File) deletes it and the go to (Y file) and creates a new record with all the information from the (X File).

    please advise!!!

    Delete after

    To accomplish the way described, you would want to copy all the info and create the duplicate record. You would then delete the original record.

    Depending on your situation the best way to do this would be to export the original record, delete it, and then import into the second file.

    Arrow

    Thank you for replying.

    The problem with exporting single records is that I have to arrange the fields in the Export menu for each Field. This works for me when I have to transfer many records. But is a waste of time when exporting a single record into the new file (is faster by manually coping and pasting the info into the new file).

    Thanks again.

    Script

    You only need to map the export and import fields one time. Save them in the script and it is easy to run each time.
