FMP 10 Conversion Anomalies
After conversion of my multi-file Filemaker Pro 5.5v3 Marina Management Solution using Filemaker Pro 10v3 Advanced I have found what appear to me to be several conversion anomalies. For instance, the calculation operator for "Not Equal To" in FMP5 (< >) is changed to "≠" in FMP10. However, after the conversion to FP7 files, the "Not Equal To" calculation operator is still "< >" in the converted files. This happenstance is true for the calculation operators "Greater Than or Equal To" (>=) to "≥", and "Less Than or Equal To" (<=) to "≤". All these operators are left in the previous FMP5 format.
Does anyone know if this will result in potential calculation errors?
Also, I have found field and script calculations that have calculations with the added item of "GetAsNumber".
For example: GetAsNumber(Global Number Field) or GetAsNumber(Date Field). This anomaly is troublesome to me. For example, I have found that an expression like: "If(GetAsNumber(Date Field 1) = Date Field 2)" will not work since the original statement was "If(Date Field 1 = Date Field 2)". The addition of "GetAsNumber" to a number or Global Number field doesn't seem to have any effect since the fields are already number fields.
It looks like I may need to review all my fields and scripts within my multi-field solution.
Anyone else run into this situation?
