I have been provided an .fp5 file by a client. I need to eventually convert the data into MS Access for importing into my application. I would like to convert the .fp5 file to a text/csv file.

I do not own FileMaker Pro and I have only limited access to the source application. We tried exporting the data from the FMP app and it only exported about 50 of the 5000 records. Not really looking to learn FMP here, I just need the data.

Anyone?

Export is the way to go.  I'd check with some local community colleges or places that offer Filemaker classes.  I'm betting they'd do it for you for nothing.

you need to "find all" records before exporting, fm only exports the current found set of records, and that is saved when you close the file when used on single user mode.
