FmPro Migrator Developer Edition 4.97 With FmPro To Access Migration
FmPro to Access Migration Service incorporated into FmPro Migrator Developer Edition includes the conversion of layouts, scripts, relationships, and value lists within a predefined budget. This service leverages the automated layout and relationship importing features of FmPro Migrator Developer Edition, along with FileMaker Pro Advanced.
Features of the FmPro To Access Migration Service include:
Layout Importing - FmPro Migrator imports FileMaker Pro layouts in batch mode directly from DDR XML files generated by FileMaker Pro Advanced. Dozens or even hundreds of layouts can be imported into FmPro Migrator within a few minutes.
Save Time, Get Up and Running Quickly - It can be a tedious and time consuming process to manually re-create each FileMaker Pro layout object into any other development environment. Rather than spending days or even weeks of valuable time manually converting hundreds of layouts, Access developers can utilize the FmPro to Servoy Migration Service as an economical alternative. Visual Basic code is generated by FmPro Migrator for re-creating each FileMaker Pro layout as an equivalent Access Form, Subform or Report.
Script Conversion - Each FileMaker Pro script captured by FmPro Migrator, is converted into Visual Basic code. These scripts are intended to be used as a template for the writing of new Visual Basic code which will be used to replace the original FileMaker Pro script functionality.
Relationship Conversion - FileMaker Pro relationships imported by FmPro Migrator are converted into SQL code to build the relationships within the Access database.
Custom Value Lists - Custom Value Lists are read from the FileMaker Pro DDR XML file and used to create ComboBox objects on every Access Form/Report where the original Value List was used.
Layout Image Migration - Embedded layout graphic images are saved into an images folder and are also placed onto each Access Form or Report in the same size and location as the original layout. Only unique copies of images are exported from the layouts, in order to prevent wasting space due to duplicate images. This means that if an image such as a company logo is used on 100 different layouts, only one single copy of that graphic will be saved, as all of the other 99 copies are duplicates of the original image.
FileMaker Pro stores GIF, PNG and JPEG images in their
native formats within the layout. All other image types are also converted
and stored in the JPEG file format in order to guarantee compatibility
with Instant Web Publishing. Therefore the conversion process follows
this same compatibility implementation by extracting GIF, PNG and JPEG
images for use on the Access Forms and Reports.
