FileMaker 5.5 to Bento
Hi, we've changed our equipment and FileMaker 5.5 has been our perfect tool ... is there any way to get our databases including the layouts, fields, etc. into Bento?
Thank you for your post.
The calculation fields in Bento are very limited compared to FileMaker Pro. Therefore, your calculation fields may not port over to Bento properly.
Layouts would have to be recreated in Bento.
Relationships in Bento are done manually; not based upon a "key" field like FileMaker Pro. You would have to manually link the records in other tables (Libraries in Bento) to the current tables.
Bento does not have any script capabilities.
I highly advise downloading a trial version of Bento and using it, and you'll discover what you will need to do.
Please let me know if you have any other questions about Bento.
