It sounds like the previous file had a List or Columnar View that was being used. When you import a file into v8, it does NOT import the layouts. You will have to recreate your views in v8.

If this isn't the problem, let us know.

The file versions for version 8 is still expressed as fp7, because FileMaker didn't change the language, they only made changes to it. This means you can open a file made in either version in the other version. The only difference being, any new features of v8, will not be seen, or be accessed in v7, so be careful to allow for this if you are going to have a mix bag of the versions..

I think what we have here is a miss communication.

I missed the fact that you had developed these file originally in v7. If this is the case, then they should be unchanged when you view them in v8. There is [color:red]no migration between v7 and v8.

They are essentially the same files EXCEPT, if you introduce one of Versions 8's new tools, such as attaching a calendar to a date field, or use the new Tab Tool, these will simply disappear when you open the files in v7.

So, your original question said that you had a layout with a list view, and now the list view only shows one record.

Is that correct?

If so, is there more than one record in the found count?

      Hello, All!

      I am an aspiring developer for Filemaker. The company I work with is stuck in the past working off of Filemaker Pro 4.1

      I was given the task of bringing us up to Filemaker Pro/Server 13. So far my conversion prototypes are successful but we recently had a layout issue that can only be fixed in versions 3-6 (as the file is an .fp3) I work off of a macbook while our network is all Windows 7. In order for me to repair the layouts without tampering our active database, I decided the best option is to repair a copy of our solutions off the network. Unfortunately, when I go to download the trial version of Filemaker Pro 6 off of the respected website, the file is corrupt! I've tried multiple times, with different extraction apps and in different directories.

      My question is;

      Does anyone know a place where I could obtain version 6 (or better yet, 4.0) for an OSX computer? I've looked everywhere!
       
      Thank you for your time,
      Tumma K.

      I'm hoping my question can have a happy ending. In the mid-90's, I purchased Filemaker 3. When Filemaker 5.5 Pro was released, I bought the update CD, which requires the user to either have FM 3 installed or to have the installation CD for FM 3. I've used it all these years, most recently with Windows XP Pro, and it has worked just fine. The databases I began with were long ago converted to FM Pro 5.5 databases.
       
      I'm still using FM Pro 5.5 on a laptop with WinXP Pro, but in 2013, I purchased a PC with Windows 8. I haven't been able to install FM 3 on it, therefore can't install FM Pro 5.5. I am retired and rarely use Filemaker, but I have a few Filemaker databases I'd like to add to my Win 8 machine. I don't feel it's worth upgrading FM for the sake of using a couple of databases.
       
      Has anyone else run into this situation and/or have a (possible) solution? Is there perhaps any other software that can read FM 5.5 databases? Thanks in advance for your help.

      I am using a custom filemaker solution for medical office billing written with fp5 running on a mac with snow leopard. In addition, I have a patient management db (which I wrote) that is linked through pt. ID number to the billing program allowing transfer of some demographic information (name, DOB, etc).
       
      Other than being limited by hardware restrictions, the billing program serves our needs for now and upgrading to fp12 will take some time (and money).  In the meantime, I am upgrading my pt. management program to fp13 and would like to move new patient demographic information from the billing program ( fp5 running on snow leopard through Parallels) and the new pt management program ( fp13 running on OS X 10.9) on the same mac.   
       
      Ideally, demographic information would be entered once into fp5 and then a scipt would make the data available for fp13.
       
      Any ideas on how to make this work?

      Hi, can anyone tell me why my on-line database might have stopped allowing me to delete records?  All of my access privileges and passwords are correct.
       
      thanks!

      Hi, I still use filemaker 5.5 and am very happy with it and don't want to upgrade.  Does anyone still host filemaker 5.5?  Thanks!
