      External Data Sources

      Post

           Morning

           I have a series of value lists in an external filemaker file.  

           On the ipad, when I launch my main database, the system requires me to provide a user name and password for the value list file.  Annoying - is there a work around?

               two options:

               Define identical account names with identical passwords in both files. Then, when a reference to this second file is encountered, the second file is opened automatically with the same account name and password as the first.

               Use file options on the second file to set it to automatically open with that specified account and password. You can still open such a file in FileMaker Pro with a different account/password by holding down option (mac) or shift (windows) while opening the file.
