With the WordConnector Plug-in now finally I am able to generate complex FileMaker forms as MS-Word documents!
After all, this is a standard
feature in many Windows
database applications,
allowing my users to design
their own layouts freely and
A unique feature and a
valuable selling point!
The same is true for the
MS-Word text analysis
functions, they are just what
my text-working clients need.
The multitude of other
functions rounds off this
Plug-in, making it an
indispensable element
in my FileMaker solution.

System requirements Windows:
Windows NT/2000/XP. We recommend using the most up-to-date service pack always.

FileMaker Pro, Developer oder Runtime versions 5.x, 5.5.x, 6.x or 7.x or higher. Unicode in FM 7 is not supported. FileMaker Server does not directly support plug-ins, but files made available by the Server may use the plug-in if it has been installed with a FileMaker client. We recommend using the latest update always.

Installation instructions

After downloading and unzipping the plug-in folder it will be best if you first of all read the ReadMe file. This file also explains the plug-in installation.

Close FileMaker Pro.
Copy the required plug-in files from the folder PLUG-IN to these folders:

gbpwc.fmx WordConnector Plug-in, put it into your FileMaker system-(extensions-) folder
gbpwc.dll additional DLL, put it into Windows System directory - ...\System32

Important: DLL gbpwc.dll within the folder named "PLUG-IN" is absolutely necessary for the plug-in to function and must be copied to the Windows System directory (e.g. C:\WINDOWS\System32). It is registered by the plugin itself during launch time.

Now restart FileMaker Pro with the file WordConnector_Start.fp5 and make sure the plugin is activated.
(This file opens the plug-in example files, FRT, manual...)
