I created an FM database using data imported from an Excel spreadsheet. On the spreadsheet, there’s no indication of what it is about a given cell that causes this, but when the data is imported into FM, some of the records have data in a filed that is encliosed in quotes. I know what this means, it’s a literal text indicator, but I don’t want it. I want ALL the quotes to go away.
I have researched function references, script references, the FM Pro Bible…and nothing tells me how to REMOVE quotes, only how and why to INCLUDE them.
And I should add everything I’ve tried that involves telling Filemaker to “find” or otherwise isolate and identify the quotation marks, doesn’t work, even when I copy/paste the marks to make sure they are the right marks.
This seems like something that must have come up before now.
