File Maker Pro will skip importing records and fields that don’t match your validation requirements, and report the number of skipped records and fields when the import operation is complete. Therefore, these types of validation failures cause the entire record to be skipped.
(All the other field validation options are evaluated when File Maker Pro attempts to commit each field.) If one or more records cannot be changed because they are being accessed elsewhere — either in another window by the same user or (if the file is shared) by other clients — then these records are skipped during import.
First, this type of data collection requires that remote computers have a reliable connection to the Internet and so there is always the threat of downtime.

is used, the calculation results must exactly match the contents of the field being evaluated.
By default, the File Maker Pro calculation engine calculates to 16 digits of precision to the right of the decimal.
