go to the FileMaker Tech Info Knowledgebase, and find Article 750 "Conversion & Migration: Things To Think About Before Converting You Files"

you will find links to download demos of FM6, just for the purpose of converting old files

I have the FileMaker Pro 8(Win),but the convertion doesn`t work..I have 2 databases one made with Filemaker II (Mac) and the other with Filemaker Plus,but when I try to open it,and the program try to convert it,it shows me one of the following message,depending on the database I try to open:

-This is version 8.0 "clinichist" was created by version 2.00 of FileMaker and cannot be opened by this version.Please use version 2.00 to view this file.

-This is version 8.0 "clinich2" was created by version 4.01 of FileMaker and cannot be opened by this version.Please use version 4.01 to view this file.
