A Windows Database
What is a Windows database management system?
You can use a Windows database management system to store, organize, and retrieve your important data. Windows databases take advantage of features of the Microsoft Windows operating system. They integrate with other Windows applications, such as Microsoft Office. And they use the same Windows interface (menus, dialog boxes, etc.) that you're already familiar with.
If you want to share your Windows database with people who use Macs, choose a database management system that works with both Windows and Mac systems, like FileMaker Pro. If you create a Windows database, you will be able to share your database and all its features with coworkers and other partners, whether they use FileMaker Pro on Windows or Mac.
FileMaker Pro Windows database
The FileMaker Pro Windows database runs on the most popular versions of Windows, including Windows Vista and XP Professional. It's designed to work hand in hand with your other Windows applications to save you time and help you create a database with powerful capabilities:
Create a database from an existing Excel or Numbers spreadsheet.
Save and email reports as Adobe PDF files, or as Excel spreadsheets.
Attach any kind of Microsoft Office file to records in your Mac database.
Easily create live connections to SQL data sources.
Who can share my Windows database?
If you are part of a team, you can share your FileMaker Pro Windows database in two ways:
- Share it over the company network with coworkers who use Windows or Mac computers.
- Publish it as a web database. Then authorized people can access it over the Internet, using only a computer or mobile device with a web browser.
And your data is always secure because you control who has access to what.
