Summary

XML provides a means to easily export complex data from FileMaker to other applications (or to FileMaker itself). As more applications support XML, it is rapidly becoming the tool of choice for data transfer—not just for the relatively complex issue of related data shown here, but even for the simplest data. Its self-documenting features and rigorous grammar make it ideal for cross-platform and cross-application data sharing.

In this hour, you saw how to use XML to share data among applications where computer software reads and writes the data. But what if you want to import or export data in a human-readable format? Hour 24 shows you how to pair XML with XSLT to create Web pages, RTF files, and more.
