      Local hosting question - change host computer/transfer database

      Post

           Thanks in advance for any help....

           I currently have my home computer set up as a remote host.  I have several databases set up and shared.

           I'm taking a vacation and looking to work on a new database on my laptop while I'm gone.  I won't have internet, so I'm hoping to create and work on the new database locally on my laptop.  Here's my question...

           Filemaker Help makes it clear that in order to host a file you must first open that database on the host computer.  If I start a new database on my home computer though (where I want to host it in the long-run) I won't be able to work on it without internet access on my laptop.

           Can I create a new database locally on my laptop and then somehow transfer it to my home computer in order to allow my home computer to host it?

            

           Let me know if there are any other details needed to understand and answer my question.

            

           Thanks again...
