Definition of a Bound File in a runtime solution

I am starting work on a new runtime solution. Been a while since I played with runtimes as I always had a copy of filemaker installed for my projects. This project will be a standalone product so I will be compiling it into a runtime using Filemaker 13. Last time I played with creating a runtime solution was with Filemaker 9, and did not do much with it back then. So I am re-learning all the details.


After reading through the documentation, I am confused as to the definition of a Bound file.


Does a bound file mean a database with the runtime extension but arbitrary name? or does it mean that the file name must be listed at the time the runtime is compiled?
