The FileMaker Pro 6 version was released in 2002 and brought import features that allow exchange of data with other applications and support for multimedia files, XML files and you could import an entire folder with files without repeating for each file.

With Pro 6, you can digitally capture images, is more time-saving than Pro 5.0/5.5. Support for both Macintosh and Windows.

The latest FileMaker version is FileMaker Pro 12 with numerous newer features and capabilities including themes, streamlined charting, redesigned user interface, a quick start screen among others. It would be better to download and install FileMaker Pro 12 than Pro 6 if you have an up-to-date system.
