Importing recipients from a FileMaker database

You can import recipients from FileMaker databases two ways. First is simply exporting FileMaker records to a plain text file and then importing that file to MaxBulk Mailer. Second way is directly from inside FileMaker, using a script. This second method works only on Mac OS X though.

New paragraph Exporting records to a plain text file:
- Open your FileMaker database.
- Select the 'Records | Show All Records' menu and/or perform a search.
- Select the 'File | Export Records...' menu.
- Select 'Tab-Separated Text' from the Type pull-down menu.
- Give a name and press the Save button.
- Import the resulting file using MaxBulk 'File | Import from a file' menu.

Note that for this last step, you have to make sure your file fields are properly lined-up with MaxBulk's. Use the 'Up' and 'Down' buttons on the right to move MaxBulk fields until they match your file fields and uncheck the one you don't need.

New paragraph Using a FileMaker script (Mac OS X only):
You have to follow the FileMaker integration guide that comes with the software. It explains you how to:

- Add a calculation field to gather the record data.
- Create the script defining the event type and target application.
- Eventually, how to assign your script to a button.
