Hello Andreas! First of all, thank you very much for answering.
Yes! of course I took all advices into account, and then someone told 
me that I could make an ODBC connection.

At the begining, I thought that that choice would be free, but I think 
now that I was in a mistake. I think now that I have to pay for the 
FileMaker ODBC driver, and possibly for the Zope DA, and in my case 
that is impossible, I have to get it without any cost.

The choice I am implementing now is exporting FileMaker to a plain text 
file, and then using MySQLdb.py to import the data into mySQL. Finally, 
I have my Zope connected with MySQL and I can access my data for free.

Anyway, it would be better to get the FileMaker/Zope connection for 
free... but I'm realizing that is no possible.
