for FileMaker databases migrated to Access and SQL Server.
FmPro Migrator is a MacOS X application ($50) which migrates

.com Solutions Inc. has updated FmPro Migrator 1.62 Enterprise Edition
with additional Perl CGI scripting capability. Database and web developers
can now instantly generate Perl CGI scripts for each layout within FileMaker
databases migrated to Microsoft Access and Microsoft SQL Server.
Improvements incorporated into this latest release include:
money on ODBC drivers - The Perl CGI scripts generated by FmPro Migrator
can save web developers thousands of dollars per UNIX web server which
would normally be required for licensing ODBC drivers. The licensing
costs for ODBC driver software is typically between $3000 and $10,000
per production web server. Perl CGI scripts generated for Access and
SQL Server databases for Linux/UNIX/MacOS X web servers utilize open
source Perl DBI:Proxy software which eliminates the need for ODBC drivers
to be installed on each web server. Each Perl CGI script makes a DBI:Proxy
connection to the database server and utilizes the ODBC drivers which
were installed on the database server when the database was originally
Server Migration Script Improvements - The SQL Server database table
name is now specified in a fully qualified manner within the Perl ODBC
scripts. This enhancement enables the migration scripts to work correctly
even if the database name is not specified within the SQL Server ODBC
CGI Script Improvements - Perl CGI scripts generated by FmPro Migrator
now incorporate improvements including the addition of "Integers
Only" data validation.
Migrator GUI Improvements - The FmPro Migrator graphical interface has
been improved by allowing the loading of configuration files with file
names exceeding 31 characters in length. Additional improvements include
allowing the use of underscore characters within database username fields,
and the automatic entry of TCP/IP port numbers whenever making a selection
from the database menu.
