Conversion FM11 to FM12

Conversion FM11 to FM12


FileMaker Pro



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
