Chapter 7. Converting Files > To convert files from earlier FileMaker versions:

To convert files from earlier FileMaker versions:

1.
While running FileMaker version 6, choose File > Open ( in Windows/ on the Mac) and navigate to the file created using an earlier version of FileMaker. Once you find it, click Open.

2.
A dialog box will appear, alerting you that the older original file will be converted and automatically renamed by adding Old to its name (Figure 7.1). (By default, the new FileMaker 6 version of the file will be given the original file’s name.) Unless you want to type in another name, click OK. A new version of the data will appear in Browse mode.

Figure 7.1. A warning dialog box asks you to rename pre-version 5 FileMaker databases you convert to the version 5–6 format.
