4.0 out of 5 stars Good Product July 18, 2012
This product is a good product. Filemaker is owned by Apple so It like other Apple products, expensive. The draw backs is networking. You have to have Filemaker on each computer. The Great things about filemaker is it will run on Windows, Mac, Ipad, Itouch and Iphone. You have to have Filemaker Go for the Ipad, Itouch, and Iphone and currently Go is Free. 12 is a big upgrade from previous Filemaker Products, so you can't run it with previous versions. You have to upgrade all computers. This product is on the right track, if they would just make it more cost effective for small business / small Network users then it would be a 10 star.

I have owned or worked with FileMaker Pro 6, 8, 9 and now 12 for over 10 years. It's nice program with a lot of flexibility and power. Compared to older versions, using the likes of Inspector, which is also present in 11, makes making layouts a breeze.

If you are using Lion or Mountain Lion for Mac, any version older than 11 would not work on your computer. It is important to note that database for 12 is not compatible with 11 or older. For many people, it may make sense to stay with 11 for a while longer in order to be able to exchange information with other people still using older versions of FileMaker.

In my opinion, there now may be one clear reason for preferring 12 over 11 - Retina Display MacBooks. With Mountain Lion as OS (but apparently not Lion), FileMaker Pro 12 gives crystal clear texts. I don't think this is true for 11.

I'm only giving 4 stars because of some bugs that interfere with my use (see a long list of known bugs in various versions of FileMaker at [...] ) as well as lack of a stronger finder function - something that would temporarily or optionally highlight search terms found in the database.

5.0 out of 5 stars 12 Ways FileMaker 12 Will Impact Your Work and Business February 13, 2013
The newest version of FileMaker was released in April 2012 after nearly 2 years in the making. With it has come a slew of new features and many things that the FileMaker world has waited for with anticipation. Here are 12 ways FileMaker 12 will affect you and your business:

1. FileMaker 12 is a major release. Along with it comes a new database file format change...the first since FileMaker 7. Although conversion of your existing files will be fairly painless, there must be testing and planning in the upgrade of this software. If you haven't yet converted old databases from FileMaker 5 format, you've got two file format conversions to do to get up-to-date. If you remember the migration from .fp5 to .fp7 as being painful and expensive, the migration from .pf7 to .fp12 will be nothing like that. FileMaker 12 is a release that builds the infrastructure possible for even more future innovation.
2. You must upgrade your FileMaker server, clients, and databases all at the same time. Everyone will need to be running FileMaker 12 to access your updated databases. No more mixing and matching of server and client 9, 10, and 11. There may also be increased system requirements. For example, FileMaker 12 will not run on any older PowerPC based Macintoshes anymore. You may need to upgrade your operating system to a more recent version before you can install FileMaker 12.
System Requirements for FileMaker client:
Mac OS 10.6 Snow Leopard, and 10.7 Lion (Leopard and PPC no longer supported on the Mac OS.)
Windows XP SP3, Vista SP2, and Windows 7
3. If you run any plug-ins or other software that integrates with FileMaker, you'll want to wait until new versions are released that are fully compatible and tested with FileMaker 12.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wouldn't be without it December 23, 2012

I have used Filemaker for many years, and it's the easiest database software to use. I have several databases, large and small, on Filemaker, and I wouldn't be without it. Filemaker 12 continues the tradition of excellent products.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Bomb of Databases November 24, 2012
Verified Purchase
This is by far the best program with which to build your relational database apps. Very strong scripting makes this really versatile. I have been working for years with an older version and had to upgrade because of the rich variety of new features. What it really needs is a comprehensive training manual.

4.0 out of 5 stars File Maker Pro Upgrade December 29, 2013
Verified Purchase
Not being a power data base user I can't truly appreciate how powerful this application is. I upgraded simply because the old version I was running is not compatible with more recent versions of OS-X. When I upgraded the main computer at my shop, I had no choice but to upgrade the software. There are a few minor problems which I imagine are due to my data base being built on an older version of FMP. At some point I'll get on the phone with support to figure them out. But for now it works well enough and I appreciate the convenience of having the data file share between the computer, my iPad, and iPhone

I have used FileMaker since before it was called FileMaker II back in the 1980s. I have never seen any other relational database that was so easy to use. Even using it as a (programmable) spreadsheet is easier than programming the biggest selling spreadsheet software.

When my Power PC Mac computers began to die for lack of support, I had to make a change to Intel processor Macs. I decided to "bite the bullet" and go all the way to Mountain Lion and FileMaker Pro 12. I had FileMaker databases we have used since 1990. To upgrade, I had to use the last surviving PPC Mac to convert FP5 format to FP7 and from there I could convert to the FMPRO12 format. It was a bit tedious. I was quite pleased to find that the converted databases worked fine in FP 12.

The same databases run fine on my Windows XP laptop and installed from the same installation disk. My advice is: Don't look back. Go to FileMaker 12 and convert every old database you have to the latest version. Of course, always make a backup first.
