Conversion 7 to 12 problem with relations


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Mac 0s 10.8

Description of the issue

We have several maintenance databases hosed by one file in version 7and version 11.
They worked fine until converted to version 12.
We followed all the suggested steps. It keeps showing dialogs on not being able to find files.
We connect them and they show correctly on the Relationships, scripts and external databases. They work fine with out the host.
The host file simply opens all the files by performing open script from each file.
I checked all of those scripts and they are fine too.
Any suggestions?

Steps to reproduce the problem

I want to add to this post, correction. It is not just the one file called Host (that opens all other files). Each file that is related to another can't find the file even though I keep making sure the relation is there. It looses it each time I quit!

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

This operation could not be completed because a require data source is missing.

The file "Buildings" could not be opened (not found)

Yet they are able to open the files anyways.
