    No luck emailing data



      No luck emailing data


      I have finished my database and have it working pretty smoothly. Now I need to email database back to my computer from my IPAD for a backup. I followed instructions but with no success.

      Must be missing something.  I have tried GO to Print and PDF, etc. and send but no luck. IPAD sounds like it is sending but no data shows sending afterwards and I never receive anything.

      Need a little help over the hurdle.

          Thank you for your post.

          What steps are you taking?  Try opening the database file in FileMaker Go as you normally would.  Then, in the upper right corner, tap the gear icon.  In the Menu that displays, tap "Save / Send".  In the Save / Send window, tap "Database".  In the Database window, tap "Email", address the mail to the email address on your desktop machine and tap "Send" in the upper right corner.

          Another option would be to physically connect your iPad to your desktop machine, launch iTunes on the desktop machine, and copy the file from FileMaker Go to your desktop machine.

          Let me know if you need additional clarification.
