FmPro Migrator quickly and accurately migrates FileMaker Pro database
structure and data to Oracle. Large text and Container field data is also
migrated without manual data entry.

FmPro Migrator is available in two versions, Lite and STD Editions. FmPro
Migrator Lite Edition utilizes CSV or TAB delimited export files to migrate
relatively small datasets from FileMaker Pro. The Lite edition is perfect
for FileMaker developers who may just want to generate database structure
reports for a few existing FileMaker Pro databases.

FmPro Migrator STD Edition adds the following additional features:
Migration of large text fields and image data to Oracle - FileMaker Pro
database fields containing more than 4000 characters of text are migrated to
Oracle CLOB columns - supporting up to 4 billion characters per field. Image
data within FileMaker Pro container fields is migrated directly to Oracle
BLOB columns through a network connection. No manual data entry is required
for processing either of these specialized datatypes.

Support for specifying stand-alone FileMaker Pro solutions files - Migration
scripts and database structure reports may also be generated for stand-alone
FileMaker Pro solution applications compiled for the MacOS platform.

Processing of up to 50 open FileMaker Pro databases - Migration scripts and
documentation files are generated for all open FileMaker Pro database files.
This feature can be utilized to quickly produce documentation of database
structure for large numbers of existing FileMaker Pro solutions.

FmPro Migrator utilizes specialized features of MacOS X, therefore it is
available only for MacOS X. A free demo version of FmPro Migrator may be
downloaded from www.dotcomsolutionsinc.net/downloads/index.html. For more
info, please see:

An example Perl:DBI program generated by FmPro Migrator is available.
