      Global graphic disappears every time I shut down FM

      Post

      I use FM Advanced 10 and the server version.  I have a global graphic that disappears from the container field every time I shut down FM.

          global fields have their content 'per user' - everyone can have own data in the very same field

          - as an initial value, the field will have the content that was set _before_ the DB-file was copied to the server (i.e. 'empty')

          - as an alternative, the field can be set to an initial value/content by a startup script that 'fills' that field

          So, if You set the global field during Your work with FileMaker, the next time You start Your DB, that field ist empty/has the 'initial' content. If You wan't to have the content stored in the DB, You'll have to use 'normal' (non global) fields, maybe in a 'global' table that has one record (but serveral fields)
