FileMaker Inc. will showcase a variety of K-12 education software solutions, based on FileMaker Pro 6 and designed for both teachers and administrators, at next week's National Educational Computing Conference (NECC).
FileMaker Pro is workgroup database software that's compatible with Mac OS X and Mac OS 8.6-9.x. NECC is the world's largest annual educational technology show. This year it's being held June 29 - July 2 in Seattle, Washington.

FileMaker Pro 6 has a suggested list price of US$299; upgrades are $149. FileMaker Pro 6 shares the same file format as FileMaker Pro 5 and 5.5, so FileMaker Pro 6 solutions work with FileMaker Server 5 and 5.5. The current FileMaker Server software supports FileMaker Pro 5, 5.5 and 6.
FileMaker Pro 6 Unlimited enables publishing FileMaker databases to an unlimited number of Web users over a corporate intranet or the Internet. It costs $999 ($499 upgrade for licensed customers of FileMaker Pro 5 or 5.5 Unlimited). Volume license pricing is available.
