    importing an sql table



      importing an sql table



      I am fairly new to filemaker nad learning of its capabilities. I was hoping someone could help mw know if it is possible to import the tables from an sql based database and if so, how to do it? i made an application using mysql and web based forms before and it would save me a lot of time if i could import all the variables and tables that i made before into a filemaker database instead of making all the tables and variables agian from scratch.

          If by "variable", you mean "field", you have two options, You can export your data into one of several different text file formats such as csv, or tab and then import into FileMaker, or you can use ODBC to import into FileMaker. But if you mean something else by "variable", then this is not something that you can import.
