A FileMaker solution that manages information for a printed directory is posting pipe demilted files to an FTP server. The owner of the FileMaker solution had a .net app created that runs as a separate tool bar on Windows. On start up the Windows app gets the daily posted updated .txt file from the FTP server and applies the changes to itself.
The client is currently looking for a .net developer to continue work on the app. Preference would be given to a local developer in Boise but that seems unlikely at this point :-)
