Hi Emily

We don't know what the file format and metadata generated by Filemaker Pro
are, whether greenstone plugins can process them. If none exiting
greeenstone plugin can handle this kind file, you need to write a new
plugin for it. If you have known the metadata of this format, you can
convert them into greenstone.
