Converting from v1.0 (Mac) to current (Win)

Hey there, I have in my hands copies of filemaker files, made with version 1.0 on Macintosh (yes, ancient stuff smile.gif, I must convert those to the most current version. The question is how to do that? Because of my optimistic nature I tried to open them with the latest Windows version but it refused to do so, so it seems I would have to do this incrementally, from version 1.0 -> ?? -> ?? -> current (Windows). Can anyone here help me figure out which versions of FM I need to be able to do this?

With thanks in advance smile.gif

in haste: There was a thread on this recently... if you mean plain-old version 1 (not Pro)... Try searching the archives... what I remember is that backwards compatibility to v. 1 for Mac was not retained for long, and by the time FM made it cross-platform, v1 had already dropped off the convertibility horizon. So, perhaps you'll need to find a friend with older mac versions...

Thank you for your reply and yes, I mean the plain-old(est), non-pro version.

I have not been able to locate that thread you mentioned after an exhaustive (at least I'm exhausted) search in the archives, using every relevant keyword combination I could think of.

If you (or someone out there) could help me locate that thread you refer to I would be most grateful (wish this was experts-exchange so I could give points!).

Btw, I had expected having to locate an older Mac version, but the question is which version would be most likely to offer both v1 conversion and cross platform compatibility (perhaps I need more than one older Mac version?).

Thanks,

Bj
