      Can FM 4.1 database be migrated to FM 6, 7 and later? Definitive answer anyone?

      Post

      Hello, I have seen conflicting reports of issues with this matter -

      Our goal: To upgrade an office running a G3 Mac with a database in

      Filemaker 4.1 (on 8.6).... to an OSX platform and a newer version of 

      Filemaker.  

      Is there any problem that would prevent us from easily converting/upgrading

      all Filemaker 4.1 files to a newer FM version. 

       

      I do not necessarily need the robust feature set of FM 10, so an earlier

      OSX-compatible version would seem to suffice.  

       

      Any advice on how to proceed and which 'newer' OSX-compatible version

      (whatever that will run stable through OSX 10.4 preferably).  Thanks VERY

      much for any definitive help with this.  - Mike
