	I maintain 3 FMP databases, and was advised by our systems
librarians that Access in not as good as FMP for what I am using them
for, so I shouldn't waste my time moving.  What is the impetus for
moving to Access?  Thanks.

We currently keep much of our serials financial and subscription
information on a FileMaker Pro 4.1 database. We eventually need to
transfer the information to an Access database. If any of you have had
experience with transferring files between these two programs, I would
appreciate any feedback and tips you might have.

Thanks in advance for any information,
