You say you loaded Bento 3 but did you open Bento 3 and allow it to convert your database to the new version?
I did not have an old version of Bento on my machine, I have only had Bento 3 on the Machine.
Thanks for your interest
Here is some more info, when I try to open Bento 3 file from Desk top or anywhere else the screen goes to normal desktop no error window or anything.
When you "load" Bento 3, are you attempting to use Import Records in Filemaker to import the data from Bento?
If so, make sure that Bento is closed on your computer before using filemaker to import from Bento. (I don't use Bento, but have read that advice from TSGal in another thread.)
Yes I am trying to load a Bento 3 file from desk top to which I saved it to.
I tried what you recommended no joy.
Thanks for your time I got it.
