Querying FM data using MySQL



     Hi all,
     I have developed and now administer a FileMaker database that is used primarily as a data capture tool in the medical research field (which works great). What I need now is a sophisticated way to query the data, and export the results of these queries from the database. Find requests are really not going to cut it. Ideally I'd like to be able to use MySQL (workbench or similar) to query my FileMaker data and produce an output that can be exported to something like xls/csv that can be transmitted to researchers. 
     I've tried looking for an answer to this but am finding only literature with the problem reversed (data in MySQL being used in FileMaker). 
     Any suggestions would be appreciated.
