Title

Database Planning

Post

I currently use ACT! by Sage for my company database.  I am beginning the planning to transistion everything over to FileMaker and I have two questions regarding it.

 

1.  Does anybody know if its possible to export/import fields and layouts from ACT! to FileMaker Pro.

 

The end result will contain 5 major components:

   -Clients

   -Vendors

   -Employees

   -Leads not converted to sales

   -Database of products (with description, sku's, pricing, etc.)

 

2.  I am starting the the product database to get used to FileMaker's interface and am a bit confused as to what would be its own table and if I should plan for multiple files, or to contain all the tables in one file.  My thought is that the 5 major components above will all be their own tables and be located within one file.  This way I can have relationships and share data.

 

Can anybody shed some light on this?

 

Thanks.
