I saw recently a little filemaker product that would back-save from fm12 to fm11.
Can anyone point me to where to find it again?
I have not heard of this, but since the files are not compatible this is unlikely unless it saved the file in XML format of some kind.
Thanks for responding.
There was a downloads page & I forget exactly how much the program was but somewhere like $19 to backsave .fmp12 to .fp7
Of course it would be rarely needed but when, then essential. I hope I can track it down, I shoud have grabbed it when I saw it.
And that would ONLY be the data, right? It's unlikely that even a DDR (xml) would be used to create any version with layouts, scripts, valuelists, custom functions, etc. And there are sufficient changes between FM11 & FM12 that 'revert back' would be difficult. IF, however, you have FM11 that was converted to FM12 and want to IMPORT data between, several of the formats may would work.

Of course Beverly is right (she usually is) you can transfer the data back from 12 to 11 using a merge format for example that has header info would probably be best but the architecture of 12 is VERY different so I don't see this really happening XML is the only possibility I could think of which is why I mentioned it but that's a long shot. For the most part going to 12 is a one way trip so you better be sure it's the direction you want to go before making the move.
I can see a new version of fmRobot as a possibilty !
