A typical conversion project

Omnis 7 Conversion FAQs
So what are the main differences between Omnis 7 and Omnis Studio?
Can I convert my Omnis 7 version 3 applications to Omnis Studio?
The majority of simple applications will convert, and they will function in the same way as before. However some large or more complex applications will require some attention following conversion. The effort involved in the conversion process must be weighed against the longer term benefits of upgrading to Omnis Studio and taking advantage of its new features.
You can even convert applications created with Omnis 7 version 2 or earlier to Omnis Studio by first converting them to Omnis 7.3. A similar case applies to converting Omnis data files: Omnis Studio v3 or v4 will attempt to convert Omnis 7.3 data files automatically, while you must convert data files created with Omnis 7 version 2 or earlier to Omnis Studio by first converting them to Omnis 7.3. For very old Omnis data files, such as those created with Omnis 3, Omnis 5, or in some cases Omnis 7 version 1 or 2, it may be worth exporting the data from your old data file and importing it into a new Omnis Studio data file.
Once your application is converted and running on Studio 3 or 4, it can be converted easily to the latest Omnis Studio 10 release. However, at this stage you also have to take care of the conversion to Unicode as Studio 5 and higher releases are Unicode-only.
