Hi, I'm having a problem with sharing a database, i just cannot solve. the technical department of the company uses a filemaker database to keep track of the materials in stock. For ease of use, they want to share the database so colleagues can access and change the database items from other computers. I followed the procedure on the filemaker pro website to share the database using the client, not a filemaker server. At first this looks ok, the database is accessible from other computers, and the fields can be updated. However, when another user logs in on another computer, the share settings change on the Host. more specifically, the "network access to file" changes from "all users" to "no users". Anyone have any idea how this can happen? thanks, Stijn
We have a solution "Hub" and want 4 clients to be able to access the file on a network drive - J drive. We are using FM 16 on Windows. Is it possible for multiple clients to share a file on a network - with simultaneous use? If so, how do I set this up? We cannot simultaneously use the file. When one user is logged in, the other users get an error message: "Hub.fmp12" is currently in use and could not be opened. If the file is shared, you can use the open Remote command to open the file on the network. (If you've opened the file before, check the Open Recent menu.) There are no remote files listed. I have Network Sharing turned on. (see attached image). When I login and no one else is logged in, I get a warning message asking if I want to Open Without Sharing. (see attached) Even when I click "open" the file is not accessible to other users. Thank you in advance!
