Transferring Data from one Database to another


Hi! I am still pretty new to FileMaker and am by no means a programmer; however, I am in charge of creating different layouts within FileMaker. I have a PC using Windows XP and FileMaker Pro 10.


I have two databases. I need to transfer data from one to the other. Now, I know how to do relationships and all that; but that is not what I need. I need to transfer the data housed on Database #1 so it will be housed on Database #2 instead. I do not know if this is possible without doing it manually. I need people to be able to enter the data into Database #2 and then from there Database #1 can pull it into it's layouts and such.


Is there anyway of doing this other than just replugging in all the numbers (there are over 5,000 records...just trying to find a simple and less time-consuming way).


If you need more information, please, let me know.
