FileMaker Conversion or FileMaker Migration… Say Wha?!
There is no magic wand that makes migration or conversion to or from FileMaker Pro miraculously occur.
But, eXcelisys is the miraculous Merlin of migration for you!
We don’t have silver bullets or magic wands, we do have eXperience.
Whether you’re migrating data (moving it from one like system to another) or converting data (moving data between significantly different systems; for example, from Excel to FileMaker or Access to FileMaker), our team of FileMaker conversion experts at eXcelisys will help you.
Old Version of FileMaker Pro -> Current Version of FileMaker
Using FileMaker pre version 7? We generally recommend rebuilding your FileMaker solution in the current shipping version; it just makes things a lot more streamlined. BUT… If you’re not ready to rebuild your FileMaker Pro solution, we can upgrade your files as-is. Because there have been so many advances in coding and design since the early days of FileMaker, you’ll notice dramatic improvements right away no matter your decision.
Access -> FileMaker Pro
eXcelisys can convert your Access database to FileMaker, and in the process, streamline your data management system and increase your efficiency. Think of it as moving from a drafty Victorian home with 100 obscure rooms and hidden passages into an energy-efficient futuristic loft.

SQL (any flavor) <-> FileMaker Pro
Depending on how your system is set up, the FileMaker conversion experts at eXcelisys can either convert or migrate your data from any SQL system—including MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle and Informix—to FileMaker.
Then again, it’s not always necessary to fully migrate or convert your SQL systems; they can also be directly integrated into a new (or existing) FileMaker Pro solution via FileMaker’s ESS (External SQLSource) capabilities. This can even work to combine multiple sources of external SQL data into your FileMaker Pro solution.
Excel <-> FileMaker Pro
Are you currently eXperiencing a spreadsheet swirl, in which every time one of your employees hands off a spreadsheet, someone is left retracing steps and redoing work? By converting Excel to FileMaker, eXcelisys can eliminate the swirl and improve your efficiencies. Converting from Excel to FileMaker, your employees can abandon their outdated islands of information and work with live data directly from the mothership.
Making the leap from spreadsheet to database can seem daunting. Some people—mainly old hillbillies—might tell you that you “can’t get there from here.”, eXcelisys is here to prove those old hillbillies wrong.
