Progressive decay: passwords
I started using FMPro in 1988, when it was Mac only and was a simple hierarchical database on my trusty monochrome SE. As I developed my skills, so too did FMPro become more sophisticated as we both went in to relational mode and burst in to color. by 1993, I had built an awesome database that provided a platform for me to accrete historical data as I went forward. The database has a much richer datamodel than any I have seen for its genre before or since. It took me to my personal limit or at least as far as I felt I needed to apply effort for the product I needed (geneaology). In effect, then, FMPro continued to develop (went over to the darkside - Windows), I didn't. The last time I was able to get working with FMPro was version 7. Even then there were issues with not being able to read passwords but I eventually managed to unlock my core database and suffered some clunky links but that was okay because I just wanted to have access to the data (relationally). Now I have a new iMac and decided to go for FMP12 - and the passwords have re-appeared even though I got rid of them in FM7 - so I am stuck. How can I convert to FMP12 now that it seems unable to accept that the passwords have been disabled?
Many thanks for your comments in lieu!
