I converted some FileMaker 6 files into FileMaker 8 files. Made a few entries and all was well. Then I closed the files. I later opened the files only to be greeted by a dialog box asking for the Account name and password. This was not a password protected file. It never had an account name or password attached to it. The dialog box appears with my user name from the computer operating system. What is going on here?

Welcome to v8.

FileMaker automatically gives converted files a user id and/or password of Admin.

Sorry, I don't remember exactly, as I create the files in v8 first and import.

Thanks Lee,

Once again you came through for me.

Many Thanks

I went back and converted the FM6 files again and before I closed it, I checked File Options, lo and behold, there was the Admin user name. I'm finding a lot in FM8 that is confusing me (especially the window views, guess I'm going to have to read my FM7 3rd party manual. Apparently there is nothing in print for FM8 yet.

Take a look at the Tech Briefs on the FMI web site:
