    Searches/Finds in related databases

    Thank you for your suggestions, So far, if I understand it correctly, you're suggesting is that FM is not useful for making an interface to present results from different databases simultaneously unless you first to copy all the records into one single database?

    Searches/Finds in related databases

    These databases are all of different in character and provenance. This is why we keep them separate. /Peter
  3. I'm new to this forum. I'm wrestling with an FM-search issue that I am not able to solve on my own. I have three separate databases where I have information about ports and port details. What I'm trying to do is to create an interface (an FM file) from which I can enter my queries,search the other databases and have the search results presented in one single page, possibly in one or two portals. Unfortunately, I haven't found any way to do searches from one file into another. Regular portals will present matching records from other files into a portal. But those won't do as those matches are too strict - since they're based on a strict match between matching fields. My need is to be able to search not only for a strict match, but for a substring in a related field and have those result(s) presented through a common interface. How should I go about to interface against those couple of databases? Looking for your kind help. Peter Svensson Stockholm
