What is an .FP7 file?

.FP7 is FileMaker Pro 7+ Database

Database file created by FileMaker Pro versions 7-11; stores data using tables and records with each record containing one or more fields; can also include forms, charts, and other database objects; used for organizing personal and company data.

NOTE: FileMaker Pro 12 uses the newer .FMP12 format for databases. FP7 databases can be upgraded to the newer format simply by opening them in FileMaker Pro 12, which automatically converts them (and saves a backup copy of the FP7 file in the process). FileMaker Pro 5 and 6 use the .FP5 extension.
