FMP File - opening and understanding

Did your computer fail to open a FMP file? We explain what they are used for and recommend software that we know can open or otherwise handle your .FMP files.

What is a FMP file?

FMP is an acronym for FileMaker Pro. Files that contain the .fmp file extension hold database files that have been created with the FileMaker Pro database software application. FileMaker Pro can be used on both Windows and Mac operating systems.

The .fmp file extension is a generic FileMaker Pro extension, rather than the version-specific extensions that are also created by the software, such as the .fp4 (version 4) and .fp5 (version 5) FileMaker Pro file extensions. This file format allows users to distribute FileMaker Pro files to users who may be operating on a different version of the software than they are.
