          Hi Group,

           

          I didn't get any replies to this one. to explain a little more. I have a system that uses SQL database files and I would like to access the data to pull out some information, the main data file ends in  .mdf. Is it possible to pull data in from this type of file?

            A file can be universal and used by many applications

            jpeg is a picture format file and can be opened by many applications

            A file can be specific and used by few applications

            .fp7 is a database file and can be opened only by filemaker

            your sql database file is very specific and can only be used by sql applications.

            you need to export the data to a file type that is recognized by filemaker.
