          This is question that would be better served on the Filemaker Pro forum. Report an Issue was intended for reporting problems (Ie. bugs) with the various FileMaker line of products.

          What kind of "FM files" do you want to create?

          Files that people who don't have FileMaker installed can open and use?

          Would a PDF work?

          A "runtime" file that works with an executable created by filemaker pro advanced and also made available for download?

            Hi, yeah i knew i was in wrong place but im knew to FM forums and FM doesn't exactly make it obvious how and where to create new post. searched for about ten min. my goal really is to have a fairly passive and simple site with possibility of demo of music files and downloading of text files/pdfs (im a musician/composer) i have so much experience with using FM (but not in web publishing obviously :D) i just thought i could create a file with layouts mimicking various web pages. im just now beginning to research so i don't even know if my concept is valid  thanks for interest
