FileMaker Data Separation Model - Limitations


     Hello, I am using FileMaker Pro 12 on Windows XP.  I am creating a FileMaker Pro 12 database in Desktop compatability view.

     When I change to Server or IWP compatability view, I notice that some of the following script functions are "greyed-out":

     Install OnTimer Script, Enter Preview Mode, Perform Find/Replave, Freeze Window, Show Custom Dialog, Import Records, Export Records, and Print.

     My database actually uses all these script functions.

     Could some one please advise that if I use a Data Separation Model, would I still be able to use these script functions?

     We will have only six users accessing my database at any one time.  So, I am wondering if I should possibly purchase FileMaker Server to help me deploy my database?

     I believe that FileMaker Server has slightly less limitations than IWP.

     I simply want to somehow deploy my database on our computer network so that our six users can start using my database with its current functionality.  That would mean being able to use the script functions described above.

     I thought that if I use FileMaker Server and develop a FileMaker Data Separation Model, then I might be able to achieve this.

     I really have no idea??

     Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

     Kind regards,

     Chris smiley
