Chapter 12. Importing Data > Importing Data from Text Sources

Importing Data from Text Sources

Some files from other applications (like Microsoft Excel) can be imported into FileMaker without much fuss. But to import data from most programs, you need to create intermediate files in a format readable by both FileMaker and the original program. (See the sidebar “About Data File Types” on page 286, and refer to your software's documentation for instructions on exporting files.)
