      Post

      I developped a database on Access since 1997 and want to import or convert it in FM (size 1,4 Go).

      Thanks in advance.

          You can't convert it. The two systems are too different in their designs. You can export the data from the MS Access tables into Csv, tag or Excel files and then you can import that data into FileMaker. This gets your data into FileMaker, but you will still need to set up layouts, scripts, relationships, value lists etc. in FileMaker to produce the need functionality you had in MS Access.
