If someone create a GDA provider for filemaker, then yes.

If someone creates a GDA provider for those file formats.  Of course, if those
applications support GDA themselves you may be able to do the reverse.  Load
data into a GDA supported database via Gnumeric which supports both Excel and
GDA.  Open Office would be tougher, as I don't think there is even the
beginnings of GDA support.

Sure, I move data around pretty much for a living.  Never had experience with
File Maker though,  my current bane is DBF files for which no GDA or ODBC driver
exits on any platform but windows.
