FmPro Migrator New Features and Improvements
— Access to FileMaker 7 Migration on MacOS X –
Access 97 and Access 2000 database files can now be dropped onto FmPro
Migrator to start the migration process. FmPro Migrator reads the
metadata from each Access database file, then creates the required
migration scripts. The resulting migration scripts are instantly
generated and written into the user selected output directory. These
scripts still need to be run on Windows in order to utilize FileMaker
7 and Access ODBC drivers which are currently only available for
— Upsize Microsoft Access to FileMaker 7 –
Converting Access to FileMaker 7 enables developers to take advantage
of the enhanced performance and capabilities of FileMaker 7. FileMaker
7 databases can handle up to 8TB of data and can include thousands of
fields, compared to the 2Gb file size limit and 255 field limit of
Microsoft Access.
— Repeating Fields Extraction Scripts Improved –
The previously implemented repeating fields extraction scripts have
been improved for database migrations for all supported databases. The
primary change has been with the implementation of the primary key
determination algorithm.
— MacOS X and Windows Compatibility – FmPro
Migrator runs on MacOS X and Windows, thus enabling developers to use
their preferred platform for creating the migration
