Sharing Access 2000 databases with Filemaker Pro

Sharing Access 2000 databases with Filemaker Pro

Sharing Access 2000 databases with Filemaker Pro

(OP)
A colleague of mine, "Debbie" at work is trying to email a copy of a large database to "Brian."  Both Debbie and I use Access 2K on Wintel machines, Brian uses Filemaker Pro on an IMac.

Debbie has sent the database as comma-delimited ASCII that Brian can read (sort of), but cannot sucessfully upload into Filemaker Pro.  Anybody have any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
Tony

RE: Sharing Access 2000 databases with Filemaker Pro

what version of filemaker pro is being used.

the latest version has the odbc drivers included with it.

I am about to try and do a similar thing with an acess 97 and 2000 database. I will post my findings when I am done.

good luck

Try saving the file in SYLK format.

If it helps, Brian is using Filemaker Pro 4.1v1.  I don't know if it has the ODBC drivers.  
I gave him a Windows-to-Mac text translation utility.  No feedback on that yet.

RE: Sharing Access 2000 databases with Filemaker Pro

The problem may come from having commas in the data fields, which may be fooling the import into thinking that there are extra fields.

Can 2000 export as dbf ...Filemaker handles these well
