FileMaker can't find file it doesn't need?

I have been working on a file that will end up as a standalone file running on an iPad.  It starts on a server and runs a scheduled script that pulls in data from 3 other files.  The result of this is that there are table occurrences in the graph for the tables in the other files.


When the file is opened as a standalone file,  as soon as the file opens several dialog boxes come up asking for the missing files.  Is there a way to by pass these dialog boxes?


When the file is opened standalone,  it goes to layouts and table occurrences that are local to the file.  Ultimately it will use 360Works Mirrorsync to upload and download data from the local tables.  So possibly this is the ultimate solution.  Set up a version of the file for the iPad that has only the local tables and have mirrorsync provide the data that is required.


Any help of suggestions on this would be greatly appreciated.
