    Growing pains...



      Growing pains...


      My organization's database has been shared so far by emailing a single file back and forth as needed.  I know that's not the best way to do it, but up till now it has worked just fine as we're a pretty small (but quickly growing) organization.  However, we're rapidly approaching a point where the 5000+ records will grow past the size limitations of an email attachment.

      I know the next step is to have the database live on a server, but I'm not quite sure how to go about that.  Do I need FileMaker Server or can the current file just live on the server and be remote-accessed using FileMaker Pro? 

      I know I have a lot of reading and learning ahead of me, but I was hoping someone could guide me a little to save time.  I'm sure I'm not the first one to reach this point. 

      Cheers.... :)
