Summary

Switching between Filemaker 9 & 11 causing database problems in Filemaker 11

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

11

Operating system version

Mac OS 10.5.8

Description of the issue

We have two people working on the same database, however one person has Filemaker Pro 9 while the other has Filemaker Pro 11. The database works well in Filemaker 9, however once we switch over to Filemaker 11 certain fields don't always appear and are difficult to recover, also crashes periodically. Specifically our unique number field for our records keeps disappearing. Are these two versions of Filemaker not compatible? Are there any easy fixes for this issue?
