Comments from any C/A users coming from FileMaker ?


Wondering if any C/A users out there came from a FileMaker Pro environment and could share what their biggest challenges were in the decision and migration process ? I am really excited about upgrading to a platform like C/A but I’m working on this test project solo, which needless to say feels difficult at times. The organization I work for has an audiovisual archive of less than 10,000 items (sound, moving image and photographs). Any experiences shared are greatly appreciated !


  • I am in the midst of a 2 year project to move our set of related FMPro datatables into CA. I'm happy to correspond with you at

  • We at Luther College also migrated a FileMaker Pro db into CA about 8 years ago. We had the good fortune to be able to afford some development work from Whirl-i-gig in structuring a load profile and migrating data. This transition would have been very daunting without their assistance.
