 SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- FileMaker Pro 2.0 for Windows, the end-user database management software application from Claris Corp., was the winner of a live product shootout held earlier this week at Demo '93. FileMaker Pro 2.0 was selected over Approach for Windows, a relational database from Approach Software, by over 400 attending personal computer industry leaders meeting at Demo '93, an annual gathering of well-known technology executives and Fortune 500 information systems management professionals.
 Attendees judged the products on a wide variety of database creation and retrieval criteria including data importing speed; add pick listing; adding fields and line items from other databases; generating mailing labels; and developing reports with calculations.
 In addition to accomplishing these tasks during the Demo '93 shootout, Claris also demonstrated FileMaker Pro's Macintosh to Windows cross-platform file-sharing capabilities.
 At the conclusion of the shootout, Claris also introduced FileMaker Pro 2.0 Translator for Q&A, a new utility that allows owners of Symantec's DOS-based Q&A 4.0 database program to easily transfer their database to FileMaker Pro 2.0 for Windows.
 Within the first four months of shipping, FileMaker Pro 2.0 for Windows and Macintosh has totaled 16 "Best Product" awards from leading U.S. and international technology and consumer magazines.
