Chapter 11. Filemaker and Other Programs

Chapter 11. Filemaker and Other Programs

Whenever you import or export a spreadsheet file, you're using FileMaker to communicate with other software. This transfer of information is important, but it's limited and indirect. You're forced to create a new file in a format that both programs can read, and only unformatted text and numeric information is transferable.
