Summary

Transferring data from Filemaker Pro 5.5 on Mac OS 10.6 to Filemaker Pro 12 on Mac OS 10.7

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12

Operating system version

Mac OS 10.7.3

Description of the issue

I have been loyal to FileMaker and Mac since FileMaker v1.
I was using FileMaker Pro 5.5 on Mac OS 10.6
bought a new Mac running OS 10.7.3
and cannot open the FileMaker Pro files.
They were originally created in early FileMaker Pro, but were running well in FileMaker Pro 5.5 on Mac OS 10.6

Any suggestions?
Thanks
