FileMaker has its roots back in 198s, when it was written for MS-DOS. It's a cross-platform database that combines graphical user interface with its data engine.
FileMaker was created by Nashoba Systems. Eventually, Apple's subsidiary purchased Nashoba Systems and had its name changed to FileMaker Inc.
FileMaker is currently available for Apple Macintosh, Microsoft Windows and iOS devices.
We support FileMaker via ODBC. You will need to have appropriate ODBC driver installed for our software to be able to connect to your FileMaker database.
It may make sense to migrate your data away from FileMaker. You may want to do it permanently or just need to share your tables with a collague in a different format.
We will copy all your tables with their data and apply indexing and relationships exactly as they are in your current FileMaker database. In a nutshell, you get exactly the same database in another database engine. Each time you run the migration, we will copy all the tables again. Of course, we have a built-in scheduler, so you can run this overnight and have a fresh database copy in the morning.
Take a look at the quick tutorials below to see how it's done.
