moving a database from version 8.5 to version 10.0

Post

I have a database in FileMaker 8.5. I would like to move it to version 10.0 to have the new functionality. What is the easiest way to do this? I am thinking that I could use a starter solution and modify it to work the way I would like and modify the existing tables to have the field names/types that are in my database table. Then import the version 8.5 data tables to the new 10.0 database file. Is there an easier way? The current database was created by modifying a starter solution to track project information. The only part of the database that is a little tricky is that it has a routine to generate input dependent drop-down lists depending on the what topic is picked in the first input field.
