check the entourage plug-in:

it probably does more.
Otherwise this is something you can do on your own, it is public format, all you need is a script to build a text file using your data to make something like that
BEGIN:VCALENDAR
VERSION:1.0
BEGIN:VEVENT
CATEGORIES:MEETING
STATUS:TENTATIVE
DTSTART:20070801T033000Z
DTEND:20070801T043000Z
SUMMARY:Your Proposal Review
DESCRIPTION:Steve and John to review newest proposal material
CLASS:PRIVATE
END:VEVENT
END:VCALENDAR
the best is to export one, then do the same format from filemaker by concatenating the whole thing in a global field, then export any record with this field only.
