Any particular reason why the users have the interface file on their machine?
One way of doing it would be to have the local file use a URL to talk to the FMS XML engine and ask for a list of the available files. Based on that you can then decide to bail out or go ahead with opening the hosted file
Thanks for your reply,
This is a seperation model, so it operates best w ui on client. File contains no data, connects to server files.
I have a script that verifies connection. The issue is that even when it is put in the firstwindow open
Trigger, fm hunts for network files that have TO s, before this script fires and has a chance to exit the user gracefully.
If you have a TO from a related file on your relationship graph, FileMaker will attempt to connect to the related file before the first OnWindowOpen script trigger fires.
One workaround is to have two 'local' files. One without any TOs, and an Open File check script. If that check passes, open the 'real' local file and closes the 'check' file.
