Is FileMaker backwards compatible?
If I purchase the latest version of FileMaker Pro could I restore data from a previous version of FileMaker into it? Thanks!
That's essentially the case. For versions 7 through 11, the file format is the same so with those, you can simply use the new version to open the file created with the older version.
With older versions, FileMaker will convert the files to the new file format.
