Ok, I have a solution that is being used on both the Windows and MAC platforms and now I want to upgrade both sets of users to a newer version of my solution.

Can this be accomplished using Filemaker scripting, if so, how? or do I need to resort to outside third-party plugins to achieve the seamless transfer of data from version 1 to version 2?

Any thoughts, example scripts etc. greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Here is the method. Take a copy of version 1 and a copy of version 2. Now using version 2 import the data from version 1. Now create an import script and save the import format. Do this for all of the files in your solution.

Now setup an "Upgrade From Version 1" master script which goes and runs all of the import scripts as well as performing whatever other things you need to do for the upgrade.
