      Best converting practices to move to FM13

      Post

           Our FM files have been converted over the years from FM 4 to FM 5 to FM 7 to FM 10, and now we are moving to FM 13.

           Generally we export all the data from each file, save a blank copy, then convert the blank copy, then re-import all the data back into the new converted database.

           I know that FM will automatically convert the file when you open the old one. I really was wondering, what is really necessary for a nice clean conversion. Is the auto conversion really all that is needed when opening the old file?

           Thanks for any input on this!
