Thank you for your post.
Are both database files local? Is one file local and another hosted?
I suggest that you first read pages 7-8 of the FileMaker Go Development Guide at:
Let me know if you continue to run into difficulty.
The DB file resides on my laptop. I want to copy it for exclusive use on the iPad only. There is only one file. I guess my question is if the script I created will actually reference the correct DB location once it on the iPad. Thank yo and I will read to see if the guide assists with answering my question. Thanks again!
