Title

Connecting Files Over A Network

Post

Hi,

I'm having a problem that hasn't happened to me before. We have our filemaker database files saved on a network. When I try to add a filemaker data source to the relationship field for another database, filemaker is telling me that this file is a shared file but opening it with my computer can harm performance etc.... Then it only gives me the option to open the file without sharing. I want to point out that both of these files are being shared on filemaker server.

I've made filemaker relationships a number of times but this is my first time seeing this. I'm not sure if I've done something differently this time by accident to cause this.

How can I make the relationship work while keeping the added filemaker datasource as a shared file?
