Application Programming Interface (API) forms use PHP to extend FileMaker databases and Excel spreadsheets.

FileMaker and Excel are used by millions of people every day to build custom business solutions.

PHP is currently installed on approximately 80% of websites with a known server-side programming language.

Both FileMaker and Excel can generate forms programmed to send calculated parameters to PHP scripts that execute queries.

Queries executed on SQL or REST APIs instantly return results to FileMaker or Excel formulas, functions, calculations.

Programmed forms can then be web-enabled and shared with workgroups using standard web browsers.

SQL databases can optionally be extended with PHP to enable REST API client connections.

Simple, efficient, precise, logical.
