    Importing rdf.u8 Files from DMOZ ???



      Importing rdf.u8 Files from DMOZ ???




      I am hoping someone has experience importing rdf.u8 files from DMOZ - the Open Directory Project (ODP) - into FM Pro 11.  If so, would you please give me some basic guidance on the procedure?  I use Windows Hm Prem, 6GB DDR3, 1 TB HDD, 3+ GHz, 64-bit.  Thank you.  Gail

          Do you have any options to export the data into a different format such as Tab, CSV, DBF, or Excel? -- just to name some common file formats often used for this purpose.

          If so, you can export into one of those formats and then import from that file into FileMaker.

            Hi PhilModJunk

            Thank you for your interests.

            RDF can be exported to many different formats - but - the problem is one has to know a specific Code Language (e.g. Php, Xml, etc.) to translate rdf to csv, dbf, excel, etc.  I am not proficient in creating such a translation code.

            Ultimately, I am trying to get the rdf files into mysql - and I was hoping FileMaker Pro could assist me (as a go-between rdf and mysql) in that regard.  To date, I have not learned a sequence of steps to take to make that happen.

            Once the rdf files are translated to csv, etc., getting them into FileMaker Pro, or Mysql, is pretty straight-forward.

            If you have any ideas Great.

              FileMaker can also do XML imports. I haven't used that feature myself, but there's info in FileMaker help and perhaps another user can provide more specific assistance setting up the "grammar" for that type of import.
