Migrating Bento for iPad or Bento for iPhone to FileMaker Pro for Windows or Mac
Below are instructions for migrating Bento for iPad data into FileMaker Pro.
- In Bento 4 for iPad, select the Library you want to export.
- Tap the inspector icon, and tap “Email Library”.
A comma-separated values (CSV) text file is created and attached to a blank message, enter the recipient email addrsss of where where FileMaker Pro is used. Tap “Send” to send the message and CSV file.
- Since only a text file is created, any Media field content (images, movies, sounds) will not be included in the CSV file. Media field content cannot be exported in batch, so each Media field containing content must be exported one file at a time. To do this, select a record with Media field content, tap the Media field, and tap “Email Media”.
The file (image, movie, sound) will be attached to a blank message, where you can again enter the recipient email of the Mac/Windows computer and tap “Send”. Repeat this step for every record with Media content.
