 Will FMP 4 read FMP 1?

Dear Listeners,

I have to build an import option + write a mini-manual into a solution. The
users might use a wide variety of import formats from legacy material. In
the import dialogue FMP offers amongst other formats also "*.FM". Is this
FMP 1? FMP 2? FMP 1 + 2?
I started my FMP life with v3, so I know nothing about previous formats.

TIA

I've been on since from FileMaker II, and every version has happily
updated a file from a previous version, even if it's so remote it won't
give the file an icon.  You can't open by icon though, must open them
from within the application and go through a proceedural dance first
(saving the old one etc).  Can't say I've JUMPED quite so far in one
go, but I have copies of FMp2 and 3, and can post them to a.b.m.a.retro
if you (really) need them.  But I reckon it should work.  Make a backup
and try it, why don't you...

Note: I also have no experience...

A read of the original FAQ indicates that V3.0 converts a 2.1
automatically on launching the 2.1 file. I suspect this means
4.x will do the same.

A 1.0 file may be able to be converted directly from 4, but
may also have to be first converted to 2.1.
