      Upgrade creates unknown account name and password

      Post

      I upgraded a file from FP5 FP11. It crated a FP7 file. When I try to open it it asks for an Account Name and Password. The original file was not password protected. I can't open the new file. The original file name was PO2010.fp5.

      How can I open this file?

          Conversion Tips

          • Passwords are case sensitive in FileMaker Pro 7 and greater
          • Passwords will be converted to an Account in the FileMaker Pro 8  file.  Account name and password will both be set to old password.  You  should change the account name and/or the password once conversion is  done
          • If your file had no password associated with it, then when you open the upgraded version, select "Guest Account" to open.
