The feature is described as

FileMaker Pro can import any image, audio/video, or PDF file that you can insert with the Insert Picture, Insert Audio/Video, and Insert PDF commands (for supported picture and audio/video formats, see Using data in container fields).


But it imports almost all files like .exe, .iso, .zip .dmg etc., except text files (.txt, .csv) , Excel (.xls) and FM (.fmp12).

I think this is not expected behavior (file type is specified as "picture and movie").
