Converting Older FileMaker Pro files to FMPro 14

Question asked by PeterChen on Jun 9, 2017

I have several old files made in FMP 5 format and would still need them now.

I read that I must first convert my FMP 5 files to FMP 11 and then convert again to FMP 12 format.


Which means I need to install a trial version of FMP 11 to do the first conversion step before converting to 12 formats.

Do I need to install also the FMPro 12 or can I convert directly to 12 formats using my FMPro 14 after I have them converted to 11 formats?


Is this safe? Would I damage any part of my old file? Is there any other easier method of conversion?


Thank you very much!
