    Relationship or Script problem?



      Relationship or Script problem?


      I have Filemaker Pro 11.0 Version 2.

      Two databases that were previously linked are no longer linked. One of the databases is retrieved from a backup but I have tried looking at the Relationship and managing the external data source and seem to have changed everything to make the databases point to each other.

      Previously, one database was used to generate letters using information from the other database by pulling in the name and address to a template letter. This does not work now. The name and address field just remain blank.

      Does anybody have any suggestions?

          Start with a layout that isn't working to access the data from the other file. Enter layout mode.

          Use layout setup|Show Records From or the "Table:" designation in the status tool bar to figure out the name of the table occurrence on which the layout is based.

          Open Manage | Database | Relationships and check that table occurrence and any used for fields from related tables that are linked to it for a broken or incorrectly set up external data source reference.
