emailinged a fmp file to client to try out, but they can't create records (?)

Post


     Hi, I'm obvioulsy missing some kind of setting to allow someone, whom I've emailed my database, to create records. They can only open it, and probably do searches, but when they try to create a record the error message reads "action cannot be performed because the file is not modifiable".

     Under "manage security" I had added an guest account and given it "full access", but that didn't seem to do the trick. I figure it has nothing to do with "sharing", since I'm not on the same network, I'm just trying to email them the file.

     Help please! Thanks so much, Franzi B.
