Can You use FileMaker Pro 11 Files Using FileMaker Pro 8?
I am looking into having my department purchase FMPA 11 for my Mac 10.5 OS system. Currently, everyone in our company uses FMP 8 which is what I'm also using.
I'm in the process of creating a Pre-K registration application that users will use during registration to collect data from the applicants. If I create this application using FMPA 11, will users using FMP 8 on their computer be able to use the application?
Also, can you install FMPA 11 and FMP 8 on the same computer?
Yes you can install both. As for using it in 8, that is a broad question. The file format hasnt changed so if you code with with FMP8 specific functions, features, etc then yes, otherwise no. IOW, anything new in version 8.5, 9, 10, and 11 will not work for your FMP8 users.
