Have you looked into instant web publishing?
There's a PDF document that can be downloaded from the downloads page (Click link at top of this screen and drill down to "documents".) and which is also available from the FileMaker Help menu on this topic.
Does the "10 different computers, located in different states" represent 10 different locations from which a single database will be accessed or are these 10 different locations that will host the database?
There are ways to use Manage | Security with accounts and passwords that enable you to control which records and layouts are accessible to each user.
yes they will use the same database but display diffrent information..not all location see all the database only certain location will see some of the database ..
That didn't really answer the question.
You could have 10 different offices where they access the same URL to access the database, but are permitted to see only those records specific to their office. Or you could have 10 different offices each with their own website to display only those records pertinant to their office/business.
they all access the same URL but are permitted to see only those records specific to their office ...
Ok, so each user can be required to log in with an account name and password. The account names can be used to control access to tables, records and layouts.
See "Editing record access privileges" in FileMaker Help for more on this concept.
