Coming back to FileMaker from V4.1 and have a basic question. What are the advantages to combining tables in a single file? I am guessing it makes the standalone apps work (better). I wonder if there are drawbacks to having multiple tables in a single file. Back in the day all I could do was relate flat files and that will still work for some of the things I would like to do now. If there are other advantages to combining multiple tables in a single file then I would start working that way rather than the old faithful way. Sorry if this is such a low level question and if there are resources that you could point me at I would appreciate the tip.
