variable data source address
I could find an answer for this:
- I'm working with Fm 10 (server - client)
- I have some files installed locally (interfaces) and others on the server (data files)
- I could have multiple installations.
I connect to data files from interfaces files through the external data source panel which allows me to write addresses only this way (ex.) fmnet:/ip address of server/test.fp7
My problem is that this "ip address of server" part can change from installation to installation, most notably if i use vpn connection which doesn't allow me to set the ip addresses
I've tried to write into the "ip address of server" section the name of the host (ex. fmnet:/FmServer/test.fp7) but it doesn't work
The question is:
Is there any way to modify this "ipaddressofserver" part of the address without entering and typing?
I mean avoiding typing all "ipaddressofserver" possibilities on the addresses list (ex):
Any solutions? Any trick found?
I'd be even interested in plug-ins or executables that can do it if this is not possible within filemaker
