      importing from Artbase ?

      Post

           I'm a very basic user of FileMaker Pro and would like to know if it is at all possible to import data in FileMaker from Artbase !

           Thanks for your help

               I know nothing of Artbase, but FileMaker can import data from a large number of standard file formats. If you can export the data from Artbase into a file of one of those types, FileMaker can import it.

               It may also be possible to set up an ODBC connection to ArtBase in order to access or import the data.
