Hello Andy.

Take a trip over to http://macscripter.net and post your problem.
At least I will make a solution for you where I extract the data to the end of a comma separated (CSV) file, or any other delimiter you prefer,
which then should be easy to import by filemaker.

Take the trip over to macscripter, register, and we are in business!
