Read up on Export Records in the help system.
This tool can export your data into an excel file. You will need to pay attention to your table structure. If the data you want is all in one table, this is easy. If it's in related tables, things can get more complicated.
Thanks fo the quick response and I appreciate the push in the right direction. I'll definitely read up in the Help section...
You raise and interesting question though and I hate to sound stupid b/c I am really not (just ignorant about this specific program), but how do I tell if my FileMaker data is in different tables?
You'll need to learn more about how Filemaker Works.
To start, select Manage | Database from the File menu and click the tables tab to see if more than one table is listed. I'm assuming your database consists of just one file. If there is more than one file, then you almost certainly have more than one table.
Select Manage | Database | Relationships to learn how these tables relate.
Many invoice databases use at least two table for invoices. One table will contain one record per invoice and a related table often is used to record the individual purchased items that make up the invoice.
Thanks, I'll have a look at those items, and yes I do need to learn more about how the program works... :smileyhappy:
You might also look up "portal" in the help system as this is a method for displaying related data from a child table on a layout pulling data from the parent table. Knowing what a portal looks like can be a very easy to spot "clue".
