Edit menu all grayed out
For some reason I am unable to copy tables or fields from within manage database. I opened an old archived version of my file and am able to do it in that file so I am not sure what has changed. Any ideas?
What version of FileMaker are you using? Is it FileMaker Pro or FileMaker advanced? I believe the copy/paste options are only possible in Advanced.
Filemaker Pro 11. As I mentioned in the original post, I know I have performed these operations previously and if I open an older archived version of the file I am able to do it. Just not sure what has changed.
Just ran a test to be sure:
If I use FileMaker Pro 10 to open a file and enter Manage | Database, I do not have options to copy and paste tables or filed definitions. If I open the file with FileMaker 11 Advanced, I do.
How do you explain that the functionality exists opening the old file?
I can't. As far as I know, the ability to copy and paste tables and field definitions are part of the list of value added features for FileMaker Advanced.
Are you opening this older file on the same computer? Open it and use "About FileMaker Pro" in the help menu and see what it says...
From the Product Info page for FileMaker Pro 11 Advanced:
Update databases faster by importing multiple tables or by copying and pasting fields, tables, and scripts.
FileMaker Pro 11.0v3. Same computer.
