 Mac File Format to PC File Format
Please Help....

I cannot find an answer to my problem.

I currently use FileMaker PRO 4.0 on a Mac PowerPC.  My GM wants to change
to NT Workstation.

My question is:

Will FileMaker PRO 4.1 for NT be able to read/convert the Mac FileMaker
files already in existance?

I need an answer fast, Please help.

Thank you in advance.

Steve,

Add an .FP3 extension to your filenames and you're all set!  Ahhh, the beauty
of FileMaker Pro!

Sort of...

Watch out for differences in fonts from Mac to PC.

Fast answer:  Yes!

But make sure that all your Filemaker databases are named according to
PC conventions - ie with the .fp3 suffix!

HTH!

Yes Glenn, you are right.  Arial usually works well on both platforms.
