File Format Change

Recommended Posts

OK, just to clear up some evident confusion.

Version 12 products have a new file format. This is the case for FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Server, and FileMaker GO.

The new versions do not host or open files from older versions (.fp7 files).

The old versions do not host or open the new files (.fmp12 files).

There is no compatibility across the two file formats: .fp7 and .fmp12. Older version formats must be converted using FIleMaker Pro.

      Here is a demo of how easy portal sorting can be done in FM12. This demo uses the calculation that Tom Fitch provided a while ago with his portal sorting technique but one can use the PositionValue custom function as well.

      I have 3 fields and the first field is Amount the second field is Deposit and the third field is Balance.
      Generally my calculation should be Balance = Amount - Deposit
      If i insert the Amount, example $100 and the Balance automatically changed to $100.
      I need the Balance remain empty unless i insert a number in the Deposit Field.
      In my outstanding due report, if their is no Deposit, the Balance field should remain empty.
      Any help.

      Hello All,

      Recently, my company installed FM server 15 after much begging. The database that my group uses (built in FM12)is hosted on a laptop (running FM12) and I'd like to upload it to the server using FM . I cannot figure out how do do it; there is no "Upload to Server" option, and I'd rather not do it manually. If anyone has some guidance, I'd really appreciate it...
