Connecting Data Sources

Question asked by ericmiller on Feb 4, 2018

I have two Filemaker databases I'm creating. One is to keep track of talent who I will work with, and the other is to keep track of contacts in the development world.  For the most part they are separate, but there are some cases one person will be in both databases.  I would imagine it is a similar situation when a vender is also a client if you kept them in two separate databases.

 

I would love to connect the two tables, so I can mark someone on either file to be synced with the other database.  This way when I edit something like their phone number it will show the updated phone number in both files.   Searching online I found Connecting Data Sources, and I'm wondering if this will allow me to do this.  If so how do I go about doing it, and are there things I should be aware of, or tricks I might want to do to make it all work the best?

 

 

Thank you,

 

Eric
