How do you convert FileMaker Pro 7 database to an Access 2007 database file?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Well first off the previous answer was correct in that Access cannot read FileMaker files. Unless you have some
very specific need to down grade the capability you probably should not be converting to Access, instead use
the greater capability of FileMaker which goes beyond Access.

That being said, if you really do have some solid and necessary reason to convert you can us the utility FMpro Migrator which is a great tool for Migration to and From FileMaker Pro.

Keep in mind the more complex the database structure the more prep work you may have to do or clean up after the
fact.

    I'm doing volunteer work for a non-profit and they're close to closing up shop because they relied on old FileMaker. I have no way to convert FM into decent SQL as FileMaker bastardizes SQL and is a crap database system. If we can't do end of the year reporting on volunteer hours this large non profit is closing up shop in 2018.

    For this purpose, you can use a tool/software to make this job over. But the tools/software are not free at all. You can use demo/ trial version to gain confidence. Please read here for a good article and clear concepts: http://www.umich.edu/~lsarth/FM2Access01.htm.
