      Is it possible to import BentoDB (rather then just data sheets)?

      Post

      Dear FileMaker,

      I am a heavy Bento 4 user and I am thinking of upgrading to FileMakerPro 12. Unfortunately, I cannot find a way to import my Bento DB.

      To cut to the chase: is "Import Bento data source" any different from the "Bento:export CSV - FileMaker:import CSV" procedure?

      If not, then in my opinion FileMaker and Bento canNOT be advertised as COMPATIBLE, sice Bento does not export neither linked files (in the form of paths), nor media fields, nor relationships. In short, only the data is exported and not the DB.

      If yes, can we expect to be able to import linked files, media fields and relationships from Bento in forseable future?

       

      Regards

      Ben
