Copying layouts, including layout attributes and part definitions, between separate files?
Is there a way to copy layouts, including layout attributes and part definitions, between separate files?
Or, when importing the files, is there a way to import layouts from one file to another?
I am migrating from a multi-file solution with relational database sto a single-file solution with multiple tables. I have already combined all of the files into one file and am now copying the layouts into the new file. I would like to be able to copy the layouts with the layout attributes and part definitions in tact. Is there a way to do this?
We are using Filemaker Pro 10 Advanced and Filemaker Server 10 Advanced. Filemaker Server Advanced is running on a Windows PC server. We have about 25 Filemaker client users (both Mac & PC). We also have non-Filemaker client users for employees company wide to access a couple of layouts via Custom Web Publishing. Our company has been using this Filemaker database since 1998. I personally have been using Filemaker since the late 1980’s when it was called Claris Works. We just recently upgraded from Filemaker 5 to Filemaker 10 and are in the process of a major overhaul of the entire database. Records in the main table represent individual marketing jobs (usually print jobs - i.e. brochure, forms book, mailer, etc.). Then, we have about 18 related tables for tracking various aspects of a job through the production schedule, from job initiation to completion. It tracks milestone due dates, design specs, licensing information, inventory, distribution, costs, etc.
