Title

General search bar on Welcome layout that searches and returns results from all of the tables

Post

I have a shared database on a server that other FM users access over the Filemaker Network with 15 or so tables, with many records in each. Currently I have a "Welcome" layout that acts as my "home screen" for users to start their use with the database:

1) How do I get it so that the Welcome layout is always the first thing the User sees on login?

2) How do I create and implement a general search bar in the layout that will search all of the tables in the database that will return the results of the find in a results window that the user can then navigate to directly from the homescreen?

Thanks.
