Error Message Cannot Find External Data Source
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
It's expected behavior. That method only applies a temporary fix.
Open Manage | External Data Sources on each file where you get this message and update the external data source reference that is the cause of the error message.
