hi if your final target is using this on iPad. Go to FMTOUCH web site. they develop nice Software for iPad and iPhone, this will helpfull
this Software called fmtouch it will convert FileMaker database to FileMaker IPad Verson.
Can anyone test to see if this works to convert all my equations and that it appears the same on Filemaker as it does on FMTouch? Also can FMTouch export to tab delimited text?
