How to view a FM PRO 5 dbase without the app.

I have a filemaker pro 5 database that I would like to view, but do not have the application. Is there some way to do this - utility, freeware?
Thanks,
Rob H.

Sure, just drop it on something like Maclink which will translate it to just about anything.

What about if you don't have Maclink -I'm using a PC with Windows XP?

Probably out of luck then.

Email the file to be. I'll bind into a runtime app for you.

marty: Provide solutions that can be repeated by other users, and post them to EE, not via email. Otherwise EE becomes useless to future users.

I agree!  As I'm sure you are aware, a developer version of FM can bind an application into a runtime application.  So for EE explanation purposes, a FM file bound into runtime app will allow the user to view the contents of a file without having to buy a viewer or some other application to do so.  What you do need is someone willing to bind it for you that owns FM Developer.  So I don't see that he's out of luck, but I can't bind it if I don't have it.

Just willing to help out here!

If you only want to view the records, why not just DL the FileMaker trial from http://www.filemaker.com
