Title

Creating a Data Dictionary in FMP9

Post

I have been tasked with analyzing approximately 50 FMP databases running on FMP Server 9 (not Advanced).  I have FMP Client 9 on my local computer.  I do not have a lot of experience with FM, but I have experience with SQL and relational databases.


I am trying to pull the data field names, data types and comments for the databases into a spreadsheet.  I have discovered that I can print the field information, but I don't see an option to export it as a CSV for import into Excel.


Is there a simple query that I can run against the databases to extract the information I need to compile a data dictionary in Excel?


Thanks for any help you can give me with this task.
