Appendix A. Converting from Previous Versions of FileMaker

This appendix provides some tips for converting databases and solutions from previous versions of FileMaker to FileMaker 7. A default conversion takes place when you open an old database file in FileMaker 7. In most cases, that conversion is ready to use immediately. However, the default conversion retains the structure of the old database. New FileMaker 7 features are not used in most cases. This appendix describes how you can use the new features in FileMaker 7 to go beyond the default conversion.

FileMaker provides a lot of information and documentation on its Web site to assist you with conversion. This appendix does not attempt to duplicate that documentation. Rather, it pinpoints some of the features that the author found himself using repeatedly as he created and converted literally dozens of databases in researching this book.
