    Unanswered: Repeating field

    Hi, I would like to convert a filemaker pro database to a Ms Access one.

    I export the records to Access.

    Now I have a question about repeating field in Filemaker pro, when I convert the field into Access, what field or control should I use?

    Thanks

    Howdy! Repeating fields is old technology used before FM went relational but was kept in there for compatibility. I'm not sure what the repeating field delimiter is but new lines / returns are changed to "vertical tab" characters... maybe look for those.

    thanks

    Thanks.

    Yes, the database in FM 5. I use to clone the database, and import the records by splitting repeating field into separate records.

    Then creating separate tables for the fields.

    Thank you very much
