Best way to make upgrades to multiple database

Your post


     I am somewhat new to FileMaker. I have completed a couple projects and I am taking over the management for a customer’s DBs. They have two databases on two different servers. The structure, UI, scripts are all the same. The data is different because it is used to track sales at different companies. Is there an easy way to update only the UI and scripts? I would like to be able to make changes locally on my system and then import those changes to the two servers.

     My best thought at this point is to write a script that exports all the data and then reimports it into the new version. This is scary to me since any mistake could mean the loss of company critical information. How do most people deal with this type of problem?

     Thanks in advance,
