      File maker pro 11.04 "cannot find message"


           Whenever I do a sort of my files when compiling a worklist, i get taken down this path of numerous "cannot find this or that file" from various years before it eventually completes the sort. As well as asks for passwords, but i think I solved that part. I should add that my File Maker files go back to 1996, and I have upgraded FMP at least twice and now use 11.0v4. 

           So is there some way to eliminate all these extra steps when doing a simple sort

               A simple sort should do nothing of the kind.

               What you appear to be tripping are attempts to reference data in another Filemaker File. You can find the references to these other files in Manage | External Data Sources. If you open that part of your file and correct the references to access the files by correct name and location, these "file missing" dialogs should stop popping up.
