      Exporting multiple container fields with data

      Post

           Hello,    

                           I have a DMS in Filemaker which has more than 180 files uploaded into it. I am designing another advanced DMS but I am confused that how will I :

           - Export the data from the old DMS along with the files. 

           - Import the data into the DMS along with the files. 

            

           I want to do all this automatically and quickly.

               Much depends on the version of FileMaker and how the files were originally inserted into the container fields.

               What version of FileMaker is used for the current version of your database system? What version will be used for the new one?

               Are these image files, text files or files of some other type?

               Were any of these files inserted as objects? (Only possible in Windows and in FileMaker 11, drag and drop inserts files as objects.)
