I've upgraded to fp 17 advanced. How do I convert a fp12 file to fp17 so I can run a DDR?
Just "open" the file with FileMaker 17. The extension is the same, the file format is the same. You should have no other changes. You might look at the Comparisons just to verify:
p.s. I'm moving this thread to Discussions where you'll get more views and additional assistance.
No conversion needed, even the file extension is the same, but do look over layouts carefully. How FileMaker handles themes is an evolving feature and you might find a layout or two that needs some adjustment.
The file was created using fp12 Pro not advanced. File seams to open in Pro mode and not advanced. I don't see the Tools to do a DDR.
Go to preferences to find the option for enabling developer tools including the DDR.
The format is the same. Follow these instructions:
