Hopefully it will help shed some light on what you are observing, which is, in fact, standard behavior in a multi-user FileMaker scenario.
Hope this helps & best,
Thanks for the pointer, I will take a look.
Just went to the link and yes that is exactly the issue and as I see it is the behaviour of a hosted situation.
I will load default values and then upload the DB and advise users to modify in session if needed.
I get around this by using a 'global' table with one record...
Thanks for your response. I will see how I can utilise this concept in my database.
