3-6-2006 - Fremont, CA - .com Solutions Inc. Releases FmPro Migrator 3.75 Enterprise Edition - New Release for MacOS X and Windows Improves Access to FileMaker 7/8 Migration Feature.
.com Solutions Inc., a developer of multi-platform database migration and development tools, has released FmPro Migrator 3.75 with an improvements to the Access to FileMaker® 7/8 migration feature.
On MacOS X, FmPro Migrator utilizes the Actual ODBC Driver
for Access from Actual Technologies
to improve the gathering of metadata from Access database files (purchased
separately). On Windows, FmPro Migrator utilizes the Microsoft Access
ODBC driver included with the operating system. On both platforms, FmPro
Migrator makes a direct DSN-less ODBC connection to Access .mdb files
to automate the mapping of Access to FileMaker fields, perform column
name to field name conversions and generate FileMaker table creation
SQL files. FmPro Worksheet's batch load and execute feature is
then used to create the tables within a FileMaker 7/8 database. FmPro
Migrator still utilizes a drag and drop user interface to gathering
the database structure information from within Access database files.
Dropping one or more Access 97, Access 2000, or Access 2003 database
files onto FmPro Migrator instantly reads the metadata from each Access
database file and creates the required FileMaker migration scripts.
FmPro Migrator standardizes and automates FileMaker database migration procedures including data type matching, field to column renaming, table creation, FileMaker field size determination and data transfer for 8 different databases. Supported databases include MySQL, Oracle (8, 8i-9i, 10g), Access, SQL Server, Sybase, DB2, PostgreSQL, FrontBase and FileMaker 7/8.
MacOS X and Windows Compatibility - FmPro Migrator runs on MacOS X and Windows, thus enabling developers to use their preferred platform for creating the migration scripts.
