I am also looking to change my Bento data to Filemaker and would like to ask
for help. What is the latest version of Filemaker that will work with the converted data?
To get a particular person's attention, "tag" them by entering an @ followed by their forum name such as:
Hey TSGal, you've got another user asking for help with a Bento conversion.
They'll then get a notice in their in box that someone "mentioned" them.
Thank you for your post.
I can definitely convert your Bento data (including images and forms) to a FileMaker Pro file. The resulting FileMaker Pro file can be used with FileMaker Pro 12 through FileMaker Pro 17 (the latest version).
I have sent you a private message with instructions where to send the Bento database file.
I received your file. Thank you.
I have been trying to open the file in Bento 4, but I get a continuous beach ball. Do you have integration into iPhoto? If so, do you have more than 1,000 images? If so, turn off iPhoto and send in another copy of your bento.bentodb file.
The file finally opened (1.5 hours later). No need to send in another copy.
However, I will need the password to run the migration. If you don't want to send the password, write down the passwords for each website name, and I'll migrate the data without the password information. Let me know how you would like me to proceed.
You can try skipper or skipper33.
Where do I find the private message?
If you want to send a private message, click on my name, and then under Actions, click "Send direct message".
We got a message that said you sent us a private message with instructions on how to send the file that needs to be transferred from bento to filemaker but I can't find that message.
The file was already converted and made available to you. I will make sure it is sent to you again. Or, is this another file you need converted?
An email was just sent to you with instructions how to obtain the file.
We have made changes from when it was orginally converted. Can you do another conversion?
Yes, I can definitely "do another conversion". Use the same details provided in the original private message to send in your Bento database file.
Where do I find the private messages?
You can get to your private messages by clicking the blue icon at the top right of each forum page.
I have just sent you another private message with the details.
What blue icon is it. Sorry I only see a blue rectangle that says return to filemaker.com or a blue bell but that just takes me to the discussions.
And then there are the facebook, twitter, and linkedin icons.
Click on the blue bell. This will take you to your discussions and messages. Click on your Inbox.
TSGal I would also like to convert my Bento data to a FileMaker Pro 17 file. How should I proceed?
I have sent you a private message with instructions where to send your Bento database file.
