    I am a new iPad owner who has been a dedicated Windows jockey for many years.

    I have been using FileMaker Pro (v4) on my PC for many years and soon after getting my iPad I downloaded Bento onto it.

    Surely there must be a way of getting the CSV file I exported out of FileMaker into Bento on my iPad.

    I tried emailing it to myself as an attachment but I then only had the option to open it with DocsToGo - no mention of Bento.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Also each time I open the Mail app, I now see this document with no way to close it, so I need to also know how to get back to my inbox (I know asking two questions in the one post is a bit naughty!

    Can't help with Bento as I've never used it , but I believe Filemaker has recently released an iPad app which should sync with your PC.

    Thanks Hasty, but I hope I don't have to shell out more money in an effort to turn Bento into an app that meets my purposes.

    The good news is that I got rid of the document mentioned in the second part of my post - a hard reset did the trick.
