    Unanswered: Copy and Pase Multiple Fields

    Hi,
    I know this sounds lame, but I can't figure out how to copy
    and paste multiple fields at once from Filemaker. It's real easy to copy one field at a time but I want to copy many fields. Can this be done directly from Filemaker without having to export the data?
    Thanks
    Bill

    You are correct that multiple copies are not a good approach. If you do a find in the original file to only find the single record, then you can go to the 'new' file and import. FileMaker has a option to 'replace found set, so the result is a what you asked ofr but with much fewer steps and much faster.

    There's also a method to do this with the aid of a relationship, but that's more advanced..

    thanks,
