Title

User Accounts Shared Across Multiple Files

Post

Hello,

I've got a FMP11 database with a User Interface file that uses layouts to display data, which is read from and written to separate "Data" Filemaker files. Currently the UI file is password protected with multiple user accounts (and the ability for administrators to add/delete users and such). The fatal flaw with this system is that anyone could just go to the data files and open them up no problem. Is there a way for all of the files to share those user accounts, or inherit them from the UI file? By extension, would it also be possible to store all of these accounts in another "Preferences" Filemaker file that the UI and Data files then can read?
