Using a copy of the database file (in a Runtime solution)

Hi,

 

Sorry if this isn't the correct discussion area to post, I couldn't find one more appropriate.

 

I'm creating a filemaker runtime solution.

 

Runtime name is: db_program.app

Database filename is: database_file.USR

 

My question:

 

It seems that both db_program.app and database_file.USR need to be kept together in the same folder created by Developer Utilities for the runtime solution to function and that the best way for the user to work is to create a copy of database file, which they could then put wherever they wanted (i.e. leaving database_file.USR untouched).

 

Is this correct? Are there any advantages/disadvantages to doing this?

 

Kind regards,

Kap
