When/how does FMP decide to look for external reference?

Can this be some kind of "layout zero" issue, where FM initially access something before going to the last-opened layout?


On an existing file with an enternal data source [fmnet:/], I did the following:

  1. Closed the file on a layout that does not reference the remote file
  2. No startup layout
  3. No startup script
  4. No switch to layout
  5. No fields on the layout (blank)
  6. No reference to the remote file from the startup layout (only one TO)


I still get asked to log into the remote file, but worse the user is asked to look for the remote file.


The most baffling things is that if I

  1. Create a new file with one table
  2. Add the same reference as above
  3. Add a TO of the remote file to the Relationship graph


Then as expected I am not asked to locate the remote file.


Any ideas? Thans in advance.
