    Conversion of files from .fp5 to .fp12 on a Mac

      Summary

      Conversion of files from .fp5 to .fp12 on a Mac

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      12

      Operating system version

      10.8.4

      Description of the issue

      I have been using Filemaker Pro 6 since it was launched.
      In order to use another application I have had to upgrade my system to Mountain Lion.
      This means that I have had to update Filemaker Pro to version 12.
      This gives me a major problem : I can no longer use version 6 since it is a PowerPC application and is no longer supported.
      I have a large database which consists of .fp5 files - I need to update these to .fp12.
      The conversion route suggested involves using version 7 which also is a PowerPC application and therefore not usable.
      Is it possible to convert the files?
      regards
