.fpt File Extension

Developer: FileMaker Incorporated
File type: FileMaker Pro Database Memo File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .fpt. Files with the file extension .fpt can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .fpt files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .fpt file?

The FPT file extension is used for a FileMaker Pro Database Memo File and developed by FileMaker Incorporated. FPT file includes textual information that usually describes a database with raw text and normally limited only to few numbers of characters. FPT file does not contain any database information instead; it only stores the comments of the memo. FileMaker Pro is a cross-platform application which focuses on relational database. Relational database is data collected and organized as a set in which data is easily accessed. FileMaker Pro utilizes a database engine with a graphic user interface base and can be modified by users by injecting additional elements into created forms, screens and layout. FileMaker started from DOS application computer program way back in 1983 and was later used for the Apple Macintosh based on combined basic data engine and new graphical user interface. Minor versions of FileMaker were done for the product and in 1990 released its new application named FileMaker Pro 1.0.

how to open a .fpt file?

Launch a .fpt file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .fpt file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .fpt files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .fpt file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .fpt file will open the correct application.

applications that open a .fpt file



Users can create Adobe PDF files using the PDF Maker applet of FileMaker Pro 8.5 and FileMaker Pro Advanced 8.5. It can run on Windows and Mac. In FileMaker’s Adobe PDF Library, users can edit, print, view and email information from your database, in the form of PDF files. This program also enables users to easily share files with others outside their FileMaker groups or other users without FileMaker. To create a PDF file, choose an Adobe function [Document, Security, Initial View] by clicking Options. Choose Security to open, edit, copy or print the document. When done, save the document. The PDF will automatically open so you can view its content. Users can send the file through email as an attachment. Just choose the proper option from the "Save As" box. Data from FilePro can be saved in any mode, as a PDF file, except in the Find mode. How the PDF file will appear depends on the current layout of the document. Users can control the privacy of their PDF files by encrypting them with a password. Runtime Solutions does not support PDF Maker.

FileMaker Pro

FileMaker Pro has features such as Inventory, Projects, Content Management, Contacts and Invoices. The software can run on Windows and Mac. Database files created using FileMaker Pro with versions 7-11 have FP7 extensions. These files store and organize personal or company information by using tables, charts, forms or records. Each record has one or several fields. The latest version FileMaker Pro 12 uses newer format, FMP12, for database files. FP7 can be upgraded to FMP12 by simply opening them in FileMaker Pro 12 where automatic conversion takes place with a backup copy of the FP7 saved during the process. FP5 is the file extension for FileMaker Pro versions 5 and 6. FPT files are database files also created using FileMaker Pro. It contains text data of a memo to describe a database using raw text instead of the standard database field [limited to fewer characters]. FTP files do not have the actual information or content of the database.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .fpt files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .fpt. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
