    FileMaker Pro 7 can finally be used as a robust cross-platform file storage solution. It is no longer limited to the Windows only OLE (Object Linking and Embedding) technology or storing files only as a reference. FileMaker Pro 7 supports the storage of any binary file format such as: Acrobat (.pdf), Word (.doc), Excel (.xls), PowerPoint (.ppt), Claris Works (.cwk), FileMaker Pro (.fp5, .fp7), etc. in a container field. This capability coupled with 8 TB of storage capacity per file creates a tremendous opportunity for FileMaker Pro to bridge the gap into the enterprise arena of the IT world.
