Please, can anybody inform me in layman's terms about the upgrad/downgrade rules of Filemaker Pro, Advanced & Developer.

Is it fx.possible to upgrade from Filemaker Pro to Filemaker Advanced ? Or from Filemaker Pro to Developer?

What is possible and what is not?

Thank you.

Short answer is yes you can migrate your v6 files to a newer versions (I.e., 7, 8, 8.5, 9, 10, or 11), the aplication engine was rewritten with the release of version 7, however you can convert v6 to v7 format. You can find several threads about migrating files in the FMFourms - Migration Topic. You will also want to download and read and the PDFs available at FileMaker's site, on migrating files.

HTH,

BTW, If your question is about upgrading your application from FMP 6 to FMP 11 or FMP11 Advanced, you need to contact FMP sales or customer service to see what upgrade path is available. My guess is that they will only give you a discount on upgradin from v10, and that would be for either the Standard or Advanced versions, of course the price will be different. Choose the Advance if you can afford it.

      I have published my database using CDML pages and I want each web address field to act as a link witch goes directly to the address contained in the field. Example of the HTML code on the search results page:
      [FMP-FIELD: email] *how can I link this field to act as "mailto://(value in the field)"

      [FMP-FIELD:web-address] *how can I link this to act as "http://(value in the field)"
      Any help will be highly appreciated the dead line for these pages were yesterday and I need to get these features online as soon as possible. Thanks...

      Dear all:
      I am facing the following problem: I am setting up a www-interface using CDML for the first time. I get the behavior I want, and everything works fine.
      But there's one big question: In the CDML reference, I cannot find any tags that allow authentication of users using the FM-database built-in access privileges.
      Any ideas?
      Cheers,
      Ron
