To save time while you try different options, save a clone of the file and try converting it to filemaker 11--it will go through the steps quicker as you won't be dealing with all the data. Once you have a copy that converts correctly, you can then reproduce the steps with the file that still has the data.
You might try:
- Use filemaker 6 to recover the file and try converting the recovered copy.
- Open a copy of the DB in filemaker 6 and delete layout objects from the file to see if stripping down the layouts (all the way to blank screens, if necessary, produces a file that converts.)
Made a clone.
That opens fine. Problem seems to be in converting the large 6.0 version db to 11.02 version.
Up next, I'm going to try exporting the current db as CSV then importing it into 11.02.
An excellent idea, though you might try exporting to merge as you may then be able to use the matching field names option when importing the merge file into the filemaker 11 option.
