Need to migrate Filemaker 4.1 DBase to newer version/OS. Advice appreciated...

Post

Hi, I have been using Filemaker 4.1 for my office needs on a Mac OS 8.6 for years and must

finally move into the new Millennium.  We have multiple databases in 4.1, operating on Mac

Beige G3 and G4 machines.  I want to replace these computers with OSX Macs.  

 

OK, what's the most cost-efficient/sensible migration or upgrade method for me to be able to

move into whatever incarnation of Filemaker we'd need to run stable in OSX 10+ - and is there a means of migration of these 4.1 Filemaker dbases into a newer version? Do I necessarily have to buy the very latest FM version or would I just be ok to get a version that is OSX compatible/stable and can accomodate importation of the Filemaker 4.1 database(s)?

 

Sorry for any elementary questions - i know this may be remarkable that anyone is still

running a bunch of stuff on Legacy era software and machines but hey, for our needs, it's been all we've needed and super-stable til now - we just need to go to OSX : )  

 

Thanks very much for any expertise and guidance.  I greatly appreciate your help here!


Best Regards,


MIke
