Open files created in filemaker 1?
Tried the demo of the newest app. Can't open them. Is there a way?.
Latest is version 13 and that's many, many versions different from 1. I've only seen a version that old once and it was more than 10 years ago. Do you have the ability to open it in an older version of FileMaker? Your best bet might be to export all your data from 1 into a tab or csv file format--if version 1 could do that. That data can then be imported into FileMaker 13. Given the extreme number of updates since v1, I doubt that you are really losing much to just pull over the data.
To actually convert this file, you'd have to find a really old version of FileMaker, maybe FileMaker 3? And that's just a guess. Then you can actually work through a series of conversions using 30 day trial installs that you can download from the Knowledge Base to get to the latest file format.
No way I have filemaker 1. I have no other versions of filemaker. I guess I'm out of luck unless there's some kind of workaround.
I have versions back to 3. I have never seen reference to version 1. Version 2 was the oldest *.fm
See this knowledge base article. It includes what you need to open and convert even a FileMaker 1.x file:
