      Post

      My Question is can i host a database on network where i can have 2 or more people have access to the file at the same time. if possible how so? or do i need a server to be able to do that.

          FileMaker Pro can host up to 9 users who also have FileMaker Pro installed on their computers. You open the file with filemaker on the host computer and then use Open Remote... from the file menu to connect to it from the other machines.

          Each machine needs a separate installation of FileMaker, they can't have the same install code.

              Much depends on how you've set up your tables of data, but see "Editing record access privileges" in FileMaker Help and check out this particular sub section: "Entering a formula for limiting access on a record-by-record basis" for a detailed description of how to set this up.
