Running Filemaker thru Wine

I'd like to run Filemaker through Wine - has anyone done this successfully? I have wine installed and configured. Using KDE I select wine from apps menu and the program Konsole opens up 'Wine Wrapper'. It says 'wine needs a windows executable as a parameter'. What do I do now? I haven't loaded the filemaker files yet - where should I put them? Sorry this is real newbie territory for me!
