Title

Overwriting existing database on iPad

Post

I use FileMaker to keep track of several things (my private lesson schedule and the roster of my community band, among others) and am wondering if there is a way to have an updated version of a database overwrite the current one when I import the updated version to my iPad.

Example -- my student schedule is StudentSchedule.fmp12 (on Windows).  If I import it into FileMakerGo without first deleting the current version on the iPad, rather than overwriting the current version as I would like, I end up with StudentSchedule2 on the iPad.  Then StudentSchedule3.  Today when I updated my schedule, the iPad version is StudentSchedule3-1.

How can I have the newer version simply overwrite the current version on the iPad?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
