Title

Merging/Combining 2 separate Databases

Post


     I've been looking and it seems that the only way to combine two different databases is to use the 'Import Records' ---> 'File' option. You must pull each individual table, recreate all the relationships as well as new tables with potential 'match id' fields to satisfy these relationships. Then recreate the layouts and set all the data links in the 'inspector'.

     I'm trying to combine two empty filemaker starter solutions and then customize it from there. I'm just curious if there is any other way to do this...thanks for any response.
