What is an FP4 file?
An FP4 file is a database created by Claris FileMaker Pro 4. It contains one or more data tables, each of which includes labels and data records. Businesses use FP4 files to organize their inventories, finances, employees, and projects.
FileMaker Pro is a data management program that allows businesses to input, organize, and review data. For example, a business might input its inventory list into a FileMaker Pro database and use the program to track and share its inventory.
In 1997, Claris released the fourth version of FileMaker Pro, named FileMaker Pro 4. This version of the program saved users' databases as FP4 files. Notably, Claris changed its name to FileMaker, Inc. before releasing FileMaker Pro 4.1. The company has since changed its name back to Claris.
