privilege set is my first guess. Make sure the user privileges are set to allow for connection on the filemaker network.
That's a great thought, Mike, thanks much for chiming in... I just checked, though, and unfortunately that's not it : (
Theres a server setting to show "all files" or "just the files a user has access to", have you checked that setting?

There is also a file-level setting in every FM file at
File > Sharing > FileMaker Network Settings
which can be set to not list a file in the Open Remote dialog.
I use that setting frequently in multi-file systems to keep users from entering the solution anywhere other than the file with the main startup/onFirstWindowOpen script.
This, also, is extremely helpful, Stephen; thank you! I'll remember the kind advisement of both of you gentlemen with respect to future similar occurrences. I've found the culprit, which turned out to exist on the Filemaker Server side.
The FIle Display Filter settings were set up such that the user can only see the databases for which that user has access. I have a different Master login for each database, and so that was why I could see some and not others.
Thank you so very much, my friends!!
