      Write Data into another File

      Post

      untill now i was reading only from other filemaker files via connecting them in the db relationship poage.

      but when i want to write into these files/dbs i am not able to choose them.

      any ideas?

          And how are you "choosing them"?

          Once you have added table occurrences in Manage | Database | relationships with a remote data source reference to a table in another file, you can access that table just as though it was defined in your current file. The same rules apply however, so you need to set up a layout based on the table occurrence if you want to edit the records directly. Or you can link the occurrence to a different occurrence and access that data via a portal from a layout based on the now linked table occurrence. (But this requires match fields with matching values.)
