Title

Splitting files into front end control and back end data

Post

Greetings all ...

I'm new to Filemaker Pro. My background is  Access development. As most of you know, it's common practice on the  Access platform to split the data and the control objects (all the modules, forms, macros and queries) into two separate files. This  allows a copy of the front end control file  to be worked on offsite, while the client continues to manage their data  through the existing front end on their workstation. When an update is complete,  it's dropped back onto the client's workstation, linked back up with  the data and the user continues uninterrupted.

Is there a similar methodology for updates available with FMP? As a developer, can I separate back end data from a front end control file?

Many thanks. FMP looks like a very interesting solution for a number of situations.

John
