Saving, importing, and exporting data
You can exchange information between FileMaker Pro and other applications by saving, importing, and exporting data to other file formats. For example, you can import data that is currently in another database or spreadsheet program, or export address data in order to create personalized form letters with a word processing program.
You can:
save FileMaker Pro data to Excel and PDF files
save a found set of records and email it as a snapshot link
append FileMaker Pro records to existing FileMaker Pro PDF files
import data into an existing FileMaker Pro file
set up recurring imports to help you routinely refresh read-only data imported from another file
convert data from other applications to new FileMaker Pro files
export data in many formats for use in other applications
