Chapter 20. Getting Data Out of FileMaker > Fundamentals of Exporting Data

Fundamentals of Exporting Data

Some general rules apply when exporting data out of FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Developer.

The active window controls the export process because the active window displays a specific layout, and that layout is based on a specific table occurrence, and that table occurrence is based on a specific table. In the simplest type of export where no related fields are included in the export, the data comes from that specific table. It's a key concept in FileMaker Pro 7: The active window determines the table for export. The active window controls other aspects of exporting as well, but those will be considered in the next section. For now, we consider the simplest type of export.
