File not modifiable
I get that I cannot input records as the file is not modifiable. I checked and cannot unlock the file.
Could be a number of things. What is the exact error you are getting?
This can also happen if the file is opened from a CD instead of copying it to your hard drive and opening it there.
Also, check your permissions on the file. If the file is hosted by FileMaker Server, you have to UPLOAD it into FileMaker Server by using FileMaker Server's "upload" tool. You can't just drag-and-drop the file into the proper folder. FileMaker Server changes the permissions to what the right permissions need to be.
