Hey guys,

 

I've been trying to move all my tables from FileMaker to Access, all the data and the layout and everything.  I sadly have next to no experience with either program.  I've seen a link to FmPro Migrator posted in some places.  Is this a trustworthy application, and will I do what I'm wanting, or am I misunderstanding it? Or is there an even easier way to do this? I haven't found much help for FileMaker 13, so I wasn't sure if maybe there was a new feature that made this easier.

No new features.  I doubt that you'll find much help here.  You may find a few posts of people going the other way (Access to FM).

 

What's the reasoning behind the move if I may ask?  Access is a lot less scalable than FM.

You may be able to set yourself up for a lot of hurt.  Access is not as scalable as FM is and will start acting up (including corrupting the database) when you add more users.  Typically issues can start around 5-10 users (depends on the design and the nature of interactions of course).
