With the FileMaker data migration command-line tool you can migrate all record data and user accounts from a source file in the FileMaker Pro 12 format (FMP12) to a target file. But command-line tools can be hard to use.
FMDataMigration is a free open-source tool, written in FileMaker Pro, that makes migrating data with the FileMaker command line tool much easier and will automate the complete process for you.
With this practical tool, you will no longer need to closely monitor all tables and serial numbers individually after migration.

What’s New in Version 2.0.0
– fixed minor issue where ‘record migration’ was not always shown properly in the tables tab
– FMDataMigration now makes use of the MBS plugin instead of the BaseElements plugin due to better compatibility / flexibility using system commands. The demo version of the MBS plugin allows you to run a data migration without purchasing a license. Do mind regular dialog window may popup when using a demo license. Since Lesterius has a MBS license I advice you to install this one
– New version supports the new available options to: rebuild indexes and re-evaluate calculations
– FileMaker Pro 18 minimum
– FMDataMigration 18.104.22.168 is advised if you want to use all options
– MBS plugin 9.0 as minimum version (available in the file)
