Title

Import/Export issues

Your post

     I'm trying to add a nearly identical database to my cloud server running Server Adv, but it never seems to work. The file is mostly a replica of one currently being hosted, here is what I am doing.
      
     1) I Upload the most recent backup of my file from the server (at a hosting company) to FMP Adv
     2) Make a copy of the database using Save Copy as command
     3) Open the file and delete all records from the main table (other tables have information I want)
     4) When I close the database Filemaker compacts the file without me asking (I don't know if that is somehow a problem)
     5) Download the database back to the server with the new name.
      
     But the download never seems to complete, always gives me an error and can never be opened.
      
     Any ideas?
      
     Thanks,
     Peter
