Failed text import fills database with empty records


I’m working my way through proof-reading the new tutorial entries in the Help wizard.

Tutorial 104 describes how to import a text file. The text file to be imported has a different structure to the target file so it is necessary to select columns of data and drag them to the relevant field in the target file.

If, however, I ignore that little problem and just try to import the entire 200-record text file, I get an appropriate error message:

All well and good except that the import process has now added 200 empty records to my target file. Not good.


Ok, I’ll investigate.
