Is it possible to save a FM-database in .sql?
what is .sql? I'm familiar with SQL as a query language used in most RDMS other than FileMaker, but I'm not familiar with a file extension with these three letters.
It 's a way to upload a database to internet.
So you can ask questions to your database on your site.
FileMaker has it's own methods for publishing your database to the internet: IWP (Instant Web Publishing) and CWP (Custom Web Publishing). As far as I know it does not support using .sql for this purpose.
Nope, .sql is a cheat installer/mover for SQL databases, won't do you any good at all with FileMaker, Phil is absolutely correct. However, with Filemaker you don't need it...
I am assuming you are speaking of the SQL uploader and setup system written in PHP?
Is it possible to save a document in IWP and CWP? I do not see this extentions when I save a database.
Give me a link where I can learn to upload databases with IWP and CWP, please.
Ok, you need to read up on FileMaker, not picking on you but you obviously need to understand how FileMaker works before you start jumping in trying to build something. What are you trying to do exactly?
And no, that is not possible if you are asking what I think you are asking.
IWP and CWP are not extensions, they stand for Instant Web Publishing and Custom Web Publishing
I'ts not possible, because it is not needed. You can publish the databases to the web without changing its basic structure and you don't have to save a copy to a different file extension. If you have a copy of filemaker, pull down the help menu and select "Instant Web Publishing Guide" from the Product Documentation sub menu.
I have an Excell-document that I want to put on my site, but I understand that this is not possible with FM.
Thank you for your answers.
Whoa, I just had a lightbulb go off...the *.sql you are speaking of...you are trying to import a SQL table or database directly into FileMaker aren't you? You want to take a mystuff.sql file and import it into FileMaker?
dBase, Excel, and MS Access can be directly imported, but not the .sql file which is an extension and child file of SQL.
Ok, but you can import Excel directly into FMP, just need to take care to match up the correct headers/columns. So is the issue how to import the file full of records or how to display it after import or both? I'm still happy to try and help if I can...
Otherwise if you just want to put the Excel document on your web, nothing more, nothing less, then FMP does not even belong in the equation. But there is still hope!
