    opening SQL file



      opening SQL file


      FileMaker Pro



      Description of the issue

      Hi guys!

      Im a master student at the london school of economics and for my thesis was sent an SQL file which I have trouble opening. I read online that these files can be opened with filemaker, however unfortunately whenever I try to open the file the program freezes. I have been able to open the file in text edit, however it is quite difficult (if not impossible) to make sense of the data in text edit.

      Could anybody please help me by telling me how I could solve this problem!

      This would be much appreciated!

          You might repeat this post in the Using Filemaker section. This is unlikely to be a bug.

          As far as I know, you can't just "open" a SQL file with filemaker. If this is a database file from an application supported by the right driver, you can use filemaker to view the data, but it will take work to set up.
