Chapter 17. Maintaining and Restoring Data > Exporting and Importing Data

17.2. Exporting and Importing Data

An important consideration when deploying any database is your ability to get data into and out of it in bulk, in formats appropriate for a variety of requirements. FileMaker Pro helps you out by supporting a broad range of data formats for both import and export.

In addition to general utility and exchange of data with other applications (for example, drawing in data from legacy systems, sharing data with others, and using information from your solution for word processing or publishing tasks), data exchange enables you to take advantage of the summarizing, reporting, or data analysis capabilities of other desktop applications or to share data with external accounts or financial management suites.
