    Opening files as host

      Opening files as host

      Post

      I have set up a host computer where our filemaker database will reside.  To use it from the "client" computers, the files I need to access have to be open on the host computer.  Is there a way I can open just the main menu and have it link to all my other files?

          Thank you for your post.

           

          Create a script that opens up all the files.  Then, pull down the File menu and select "File Options..."  Then, under "When opening this file", check the option to Perform script, and select this opening of files script.  When you open the main file, this script will be called and open all other files.  Does this make sense?
