      Open remote database Hosted on filemaker server

      Your post

      How can  i use a command line or shortcut to open a filmaker pro (ver8) database hosted on a remote server?  Currently I must use at least 4 clicks to do so.

          A local shortcut file can be dropped on each desktop (in All Users/Desktop while logged on as an admin)

           

          The file has no fields, not necessary

           

          One script which just says

           

          Open File (point it to the file you want to open on the server, through the Hosts button)

          Close File (current file)

           

          Under File Options, select the startup script to run when the file opens

           

          That's it. Name the startup file "Start (whatever your main file is named)"
