    Test Environment - how do you "play"



      Test Environment - how do you "play"


      My Network Admin says we don't have a test environment for our FileMaker Pro (server) database and don't have server space for one. I'd really like a test environment to play around (being 2 weeks on the job) creating new tables, experimenting with relationships, etc. Any thoughts out there? Thanks in advance!

          If you are totally new to FM then there is no need for you to have a server (either hardware or software) to have a test environment.  Load the FM client on to your desktop and create databases there.

          If you have a current file on your server that you want to 'play' with you can get a copy of it, put it on your desktop and open it from there.  BUT you must make sure it is set to Sharing = OFF or it will appear on your network and will allow staff to log on to it in error.
