I have a Filemaker database that I need to convert to SQL Server.  But I would like to maintain the forms and all on Filemaker to prevent the need to convert that to something else as well.  I don't have a problem with converting the data, but I can't seem to find a way to link it back into Filemaker.  Is this possible?

You cannot link to a field in a SQL database, you need to import records.
So you can keep yr data structure, and empty it and re-import everytime you need to use FM.
This is OK is you have just a few records and tables, otherwise, you may end up with a heavy procedure
