    Conversion FM11 to FM12

      Summary

      Conversion FM11 to FM12

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      FMA12

      Operating system version

      Mac / Win

      Description of the issue

      I built up a script-sequence to convert FM11 files to FM12, converting one file after the other. The purpose is to import datas from the converted FM12 files into the new database-tables, since FM12 can't import FM11 files without conversion.

      Some of those files are linked by relations. FM 12 checks the relations and prompts an error-message for every file which isn't converted yet. It's imperative to have those checks and messages enabled.

      It's annoying also that FM opens every file after conversion.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Build up a script to convert some related FM11 files.

      Expected result

      FM 12 to perform a "silent" conversion without any checks, rebuild-of-relations and error messages

      Actual result

      Interaction by user required

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      can't find … .fmp12 file

      Configuration information

      irrelevant
