San Diego, CA - December 1, 2006 - Productive Computing, Inc., a FileMaker Solutions Alliance Partner, today announced the release of version 2 of the File Manipulator plug-in. Completely rebuilt to run native under FileMaker 7 or later, the File Manipulator is a simple utility plug-in that gives FileMaker Pro the power to copy, rename, move or delete files and folders on local or networked drives.

"Having the easiest to use and most affordable plug-ins on the market has certainly been proven true with our latest File Manipulator release. Rewriting the plug-in to take advantage of the native plug-in architecture that was introduced with FileMaker Pro 7 has made it even more intuitive than the previous version.

In addition to being easy to use, we are offering a competitive upgrade price which gives a 50% discount off our regular price to anybody who has purchased a competing file utility plug-in.

Easy to use and inexpensive to purchase. What more could you ask for?" - CFO, Keith Larochelle
