    Upgrading from FM11 to FM14 with Database name change issue

    aetherington

      Good morning all.

       

      I have been tasked with updating the outdated FM11 Server with about 30 hosted databases, to FM14.

       

      Upgrading the databases initially appears to work without any issues, and then I hit a snag.  3 of the databases contain / in their names.  As I understand this is no longer supported in FM14 so going from our main menu, to database1 just returns "Database could not be found"  We have several scripts (About 70 to count, reports etc)  That reference this Database directly,  As well as Database relationships that we need to keep.

       

       

      What is the best way to resolve this problem as its pretty much the only issue standing in the way of our upgrade.  I did look into using FMP Advance 11 on the current FM11 Hosted databases to rename the table but I am not sure if that is going to update the relationships and/or scripts.

       

      Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

       

      Thanks!
