Chapter 15. Migrating to Version 7 > Cleaning Up After Conversion

Cleaning Up After Conversion

No matter how carefully you clean up and analyze in advance, it's hard to recreate a perfect database. Chances are, either you've missed something in your preparations, or FileMaker 7 has done something you didn't expect in the conversion process. Post-conversion, you owe it to yourself and your users to do a complete check of every aspect of the files. In particular, you need to check calculated fields and scripts—the prime places for anomalies to hide. Because FileMaker 7 and earlier versions are not compatible, you can run them simultaneously. Open the pre- and post-conversion files and compare them side by side.
