"Modified by" account name from external fmp12 files

I've split may app into two files, app.fmp12 and tables.fmp12.


Ive done this to make updating my client's installations less painful.


If there are no data store changes then I simply ship the app.fmp12 file. When launched it reads the existing user profiles (duplicated in our tables) renames itself and moves the original app.fmp12 file. Easy.


But there is a snag I can live with, but would much rather put to bed. Record Modification user stamping displays the generic account name used by the external table file.


I can't see any simple way to get the app.fmp12 file's current account name recorded at record modification.


Anyone found a simple work around for this?
