Hi Tom, 

I haven't used Grubba.net, but I have used Zoho. 

Seems as you're currently locked out of filemaker due to the fact your
version won't run on your current OS and you're probably looking for a
solution for the .fm# database file. 

First link shows you how to get it current. 30 day demo will help if you
need it. 


This next one will show you how to push it to Zoho Creator, if you want
to go that route.


(Best Bet is probably as Shel said, get the file open and get it
exported into something such as OpenOffice Base. So you won't run into
data lock-in the future.)
