Title

Error Message Cannot Find External Data Source

Post

I have 5 FMP.12 files saved in separate folders that are contained in a single parent folder.

Several of the individual files reference other fmp.12 files as external data sources.

When I open some of the files that reference these external files, I get an error message saying that the external file cannot be found. Once I click OK, another dialogue gives me the chance to locate the missing file and all is well.

Re-establishing this connection doesn't "stick." Every time I open these files, I get the same message.

Is this a "known issue" and is there anything I can do to fix this?

I'm using FMPA - 13.05
