Hi, If I purchase fm16, and put my db in a fm14 server, can I access any of the functions of this new software beyond the capabilities of fm14?
FileMaker Pro functionaluty will work, but not FMS functionality. But do never mix versions, update your FMS to FMS16
Please see Markus Schneider’s comment in the following thread for one aspect of this type of deployment
Here are the following specs for what version of server FileMaker 16 will connect to.
FileMaker Pro 16 and FileMaker Pro 16 Advanced can connect to the following hosts:
FileMaker Server 16, 15 and 14
FileMaker Pro 16, 15 and 14
FileMaker Pro 16, 15 and 14 Advanced
FileMaker Cloud 1.15.1 minimum
The latest updates must be applied to the above software before hosting FileMaker Pro 16 apps."
Your question may also have included an interest in what new features are only available from the FM16/FMS 16 combination. I don’t have a comprehensive list available. Maybe someone else does.
Thank you Beatrice.
