Thanks for posting!
I have sent you a private message, which you can check by clicking on the messages link in the upper right corner of the FileMaker Forum.
So I finally figured out my issue. VERY excited. My issue was I was trying to use the wrong path structure for the second file. I thought I needed to use:
fmnet:/hostIPAddress/filename (so ex. fmnet:/188.8.131.52/contacts or fmnet:/184.108.40.206/contacts.fp7 )
When actually I needed to use:
The confusing part is fmnet works if you are using FM client but does not work if you are using IWP. Would be interesting to see how this would work if it would work at all if you were attempting to use multiple servers. Or maybe my syntax for fmnet was wrong and that was the problem.
I have used the File:filename.fp7 format and can switch between the files. However, I am not able to pass a parameter to the second file, such as an ID#. I have tried copying into the cliboard, as a parameter in a script and try writing into the second file before running a script on the second file.
What is a sure way to pass a parameter from File A to File B in IWP. (No problem if I use the actual FileMaker client program.)
