Chapter 7. Converting Files

No software program is an island. This chapter focuses on using FileMaker to build bridges by converting files from older FileMaker versions, bringing data from other application files into FileMaker (importing), and formatting FileMaker data so that other programs can use it (exporting). The chapter also discusses the unspeakable: how to recover data if a FileMaker file should ever become damaged. For information on importing graphics and scripts into files, see Formatting and Graphics in Layouts on page 175 and Using Templates and Scripts on page 199. For information on using FileMaker's ODBC (Open Database Connectivity) features, see Exchanging Data via ODBC on page 259.
