What is an interface in relation to FileMaker?

A interface is the generic term for the exchange of data between different systems. Most software programs have various interfaces. If you export data from FileMaker in a text or Excel format and open it in another program, your exported data is an interface between FileMaker and the other program.

Interfaces can be realized in various ways. The most common interfaces allow data to be exported in various text formats and re-imported into the target system in a compatible format. Interfaces can also be integrated directly into the systems and then exchange data with each other via a direct connection. A prominent example of such an interface is an online store interface that can directly access the corresponding store system. An example of a very simple interface is a barcode: After you have scanned it, the corresponding key stored in the barcode appears in the database.
