Thank you for your post.
The Admin account is set for Full Access. Does your other account also have Full Access privileges? If not, do your privileges allow you to view records created by others? I will need more detailed information about your accounts and privileges.
The program has two accounts. One is "Admin" and the
other is "User1". The program is normally run under User1. User1
has customized record and layout access. It limits User1 to just
one particular layout but allows normal editing.
I have run the program in Vista with both administrative and
standard modes, always in User1 account for the program. I edited
the data in Vista administrative mode but when I go to Vista standard mode,
the changes are not there. It appears there are two sets of data, one for
administrative mode and one for standard mode.
Appreciate your help. CountryBoy1
Thanks for the clarification.
I thought you were talking about FileMaker account privileges. Sorry for the misunderstanding.
With your two accounts on Vista, make sure you have the right privileges for read and write. Create a new database file with one field. See if you are able to add a record in both Windows accounts, and see if the data is saved. If not, there is a problem with the system.
Any chance you have two copies of the database file--one that you're opening with the first user account and one that you are opening with the second account? You might try altering the name of your file and then switching accounts. If the 2nd account still shows the original file name, you have two copies of the file.
Been delayed on this problem but found out that Vista creates .USR files for Filemaker
Executables (see http://filext.com/file-extension/USR for "Filemaker"). By browsing around,
found out that a .USR file is created for each Vista account, so therefore, there is an instance
for each account. I think that's why I'm seeing essentially two different programs and when
I edit in one, it doesn't show up in the other. Not really happy about this.
