      Convert SQL to Filemaker Script.

      Post

           Hi ;

      I'm working on Filemaker Pro 11 advanced.
           I want to facilitate the tasks for users and developers of databases by creating an application that allows you to convert SQL code in FileMaker script.
           Please, is that possible? Is there an idea to start??
           thank you

               I suppose that it's possible, but would take quite a bit of programming to come up with an "interpreter" that parses a SQL text expression in to FileMaker Find Requests etc. And some of the possible actions you can do in SQL like Union or make Table or certain joins really aren't likely to be possible even then.

               It would seem simpler just to work with FileMaker find requests in the first place.
