All you need is a file reference to the other file. But why is there a fp5 file? What version of FM are you using?
thank you for your prompt response.
I am using version 8.0 How can I obtain a file reference?
thanks so much!
Were the files created in FMP v8?
Can you open the files in FMP v8?
If they are truly FM5 files, opening them will prompt for renaming the files old and then a prompt for location to save the updated version.
The file format was the same for ver 4,5,and 6.
The file format changed for ver 7 and later.
