      Damaged File

      Post


           We are upgrade to Filemaker pro  12 from Filemaker Pro 7 and when we go to convert the files an error message comes up and says File Converstion could not be completed . File seems to be damaged

           Is there a way to fix the files so we can upgrade to 12 ?

               Try recovering the File in FileMaker 7 before attempting the file conversion.

               Look for backup copies that aren't damaged.

               If all else fails, you can export the data from the .fp7 files as tab, csv or merge files and import the data into a new FileMaker 12 file. That doesn't convert over the design of your original files, but at least you are able to get your data into FileMaker 12.
