I am new this FileMaker.

My company has been using it for years and had FM6 for PC. We have recently switched everything to Mac and purchased FMPro 13.  I need to know how to get all of our information (data and forms (layouts)) into FMPro13.

I have figured out how to get the data over after converting the files and moving them to our server and then converting them again to import into our Mac system.  I can't get any of the previously created forms/layouts into FMPro.  We have business contracts pre-printed and use the data from FM to add the customer details when we print.  

 

I am not tech savvy and need some serious assistance. I have been trying for 3 days and want to pull my hair out.

 

Any help is more than appreciated.

You can't directly update .fp5  files to .fmp12.  You will need an intermediate step to use FM 11 to convert to .fp7 first, then convert that to .fmp12.

 

See this FileMaker help topic.

 

Mac or PC is immaterial.  The same file will be readable on either platform.

 

PM me for help in the conversion.
