The Import Records Utility helps streamline the update of information on multiple records for many of the
FIMS base tables including FieldMaker fields. The system will also alert the user on any issues
encountered during the update process, ensuring that better data is coming into your system.
In FIMS 14, you can find this new tool by going to Tools>System Utilities>Admin Utilities> Import
This tool can be used to update up to three fields on an individual record at a time.
This utility can be used to accomplish many different tasks that have been tedious or difficult to
accomplish in the past. For instance:
Code table values changing for only certain records
Correcting a default value in a FieldMaker field
Adding values to a previously unused, or little used field
Documentation for this tool is attached.
