I added "FM Data Source..." in a TO located in the relationship graphic. Set up a very simple relationship to comicate between a few small FM files on my local computer/disc at home and our full blown FM data base running on FM server at office over a VPN. Sometimes I want to work in those small FM files on my local machine at home without conectng to the server over the VPN. Would love some advice on what on open script steps I need to neatly disable my small local FM Files from performing a prolonged search when the srever over the vpn is not present.......When I open the database over the VPN then there is no problem navigating to the data sources on my local disc / machine. Thank you.
