Are you opening this file from a CD or DVD? If so, copy it on to your hard drive and open it from there.
Is the file in a compressed archive such as a zip folder? If so, extract it from the archive and open the uncompressed copy.
Is the file located in a folder that doesn't provide "write" permission? If so, either move the file to a folder that does or change the permissions for that folder.
Thank you for replying to my issue. Your last paragraph solved the solution. Creating a new folder on the desktop then drag and drop the data file into the new folder.
Thank you again.
Hello David Sochrin:
Thank you for posting.
With the ESD download of FileMaker training series you will need to move the contents out of the original file an into a folder on your desktop.
Typically what I do is create a folder on my desktop then open the ESD and select all contents. Drag all the selected contents into the newly created folder.
Let me know if you have any more issues.
