File extension .FP7
The FP7 (FileMaker Pro 7+) file extension is used by FileMaker Pro, a cross-platform relational database program developed by FileMaker, Inc. It is used for creating and managing custom databases. The program offers users an intuitive GUI (Graphical User Interface) that allows non-technical users to customize their databases easily. It features support for SQL, scripting language, APIs (Application Programming Interfaces), encryption, graphical layout tools, export formats and import/export from other databases. FP7 is the default file extension used by FileMaker Pro 7 when saving a database.
FP7 files are nothing more than binary dumps of raw data compiled with FileMaker Pro 7, and can only be opened with older versions of FileMaker Pro(8 or earlier). Starting from FileMaker 9, the main versioning scheme for FileMaker files changed from FP7 to .fmp12. These files can be recognized by the ‘.fmp12’ extension appended after the name of the database file. In order to open an FP7 file on newer version of FileMaker Pro, it must first be converted to the FMP12 format with the use of the Open Database command. Other FileMaker file extensions include .fmv, .fmw, .fp5, .fp7 and fp9.
Programs for WINDOWS system
Programs for MAC system
After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .FP7) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .FP7 extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .FP7 file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .FP7 extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .FP7 extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .FP7 file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .FP7 file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .FP7 file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .FP7 file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .FP7 file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
