22. Importing Data into FileMaker Pro

Working with External Data

FileMaker Pro can work with data from a variety of other sources. It’s possible to bring data directly into FileMaker from a number of different flat-file formats, as well as from remote databases and XML-based data sources. In many cases, you can open data files from other applications simply by dropping them onto the FileMaker Pro application as though they were native FileMaker files. FileMaker can also import data that resides on other computers (such as data from a remote database or a web-based XML data source).
