      Access if Creator Logged Off

      Post

           I'm new to using FileMaker and trying to understand if there is a way for users to access a file if its creator is logged off.  Is the Server version differnt - does it allow everyone to access a file if its creator is logged off?

               In either case the file has to be open on the computer hosting the file. But with server, the files are kept hosted by the server for as long as the server is operating unless they are specifially closed. Essentially, there is no "creator" when the file is hosted by server as all users are clients of the hosted database.
