Converting Files

The actual conversion of files from previous versions of FileMaker is a very simple task. Even if you have decided to do a total rewrite of a solution, you will still end up performing a conversion so that you can salvage scripts and layouts. You'll probably also do another conversion to move the data to the new version. From here on out, though, we're going to assume that you've decided to migrate your solution via conversion, and will focus on the process and methods to accomplish this.

NOTE

FileMaker Pro 7 can directly convert files from versions 3, 4.x, 5.x, and 6. If you have files created in FileMaker Pro 1 or 2.x, you need to convert them first to version 3 or higher before converting to 7.
