Microsoft Releases FileMeker Add-In For Office 98
Microsoft has released an add-in for Office 98 for the Mac that increases interoperability with FileMaker Pro for the Mac. The add-in is designed to make it easier to import FileMaker Pro databases into Office 98 components like Word 98 and Excel 98. According to Microsoft:

This add-in will make it easy for customers to use familiar tools in Office 98 with data stored in FileMaker(R) Pro for Macintosh. For the first time, it is easy to integrate the power of FileMaker Pro with the analysis and communication features of Office 98.

The Office 98/FileMaker Pro Importer gives customers an easy way to take advantage of information stored in databases by adding a new command directly within Word 98 and Microsoft(R) Excel 98. The new Importer is an easy-to-use add-in that walks users through the simple steps to import small databases into Office 98. Macintosh users will save time using Word 98's Mail Merge feature to seamlessly use FileMaker Pro data to automate mass mailings like personal and customer correspondence. Applying powerful Excel 98 features, such as PivotTable(R) and PivotChart(TM) dynamic views, with FileMaker Pro data helps users improve the analysis of their data and enhance decision-making. The integration between Office 98 and FileMaker Pro is an example of Microsoft's ongoing commitment to adding value to Macintosh customers' experience with Office.

You can download the free add-in from the Microsoft web site.
