FileMaker Proa relational database manager, evolved from the FileMaker DOS program, and was developed primarily for the Apple Macintosh. Released in April 1985, then renamed as FileMaker Pro in 1990. FileMaker was relational database manager from Claris International, a subsidiary of Apple. It integrates a database engine with a graphical user interface (GUI) and security features, allowing users to modify the database by dragging new elements into layouts, screens, or forms.

Since 1992 it has been available for Windowsand for the classic and other Mac OS. It can be used in a cross-platform environment.

Apple Computer formed Claris, a wholly owned subsidiary, to market software. Claris purchased Nashoba, who originally wrote Filemaker, to round out its software suite. Claris changed the product's name to FileMaker II to conform to its naming scheme for other products, such as MacWrite II, but the product changed little from the last Nashoba version. Several minor versions followed.

FileMaker Pro 1.0 was released in 1990, then in September 1992, Claris released a cross-platform version for both the Mac and Windows and added relational capabilities to replace automatically looking up and importing values from other files. FileMaker Pro 3.0, released around 1995, introduced new relational and scripting features and TC/IP networking.

FileMaker Pro includes scripting capabilities and a variety of built-in functions for automation of common tasks. FileMaker Pro Advanced provides a script debugger which allows the developer to set break points, monitor data values and step through script lines.
