      • My old system was an old G4 tower 667Mhz runningMac OS X 10.39, FileMaker Pro 7, FileMaker 8, and Palm desktop for syncing.

       

       

       

      • My new system is the latest iMac Intel processorMac OS X 10.5.6, FileMaker Pro 9.0v3, FileMaker Mobile 8.01.29, and MissingSync 6.0.4.

       

       

       

      • FileMaker Mobile is certified to run on an Intelbased processor and is Rosetta compatible. The database is data compatible withPro7, Pro 9, and Mobile 8.

       

       

       

      • I copied the old database file calledcompositions.fp7onto my new system.

       

       

       

      • I set the syncing actions in Missing Sync tosynchronize files for FileMaker Mobile 8. When I did this, I got warning from Missing Sync thatthe FileMaker Mobile 8 conduit may not be designed to run on my system.

       

       

       

      • I added the copied database to the FileMakerMobile desktop application, and I configured the syncing actions in FileMakerMobile Settings dialog box to All User, Bi-directional, All records, andDuplicate records accordingly.

       

       

       

      • TheSpecified Fields.. “ in FileMaker MobileSettings dialog box were exactly the same as they were on the old system.
