Unable to send a FM file on iPad

This is only my second question (in five years!). Forgive and redirect me if this is the wrong forum. I have a single-table database (fmp12 file) in FM13. It is regularly emailed to an iPad (which has FMGO). All works well. When I try to email the fmp12 file using "Save/Send" from the iPad, the only active choice is "Snapshot LInk." The choice "Database" is grayed out. How can I get the iPad version of the file back to the desktop (preferably using email)? Why is "Database" grayed out?

Thanks!

Might be a file permission issue. I am actually not sure here.

You can connect your iPad to a computer and get the file back via the cable.

Or you can export your records as a merge file and import them into your desktop solution.

There are always workarounds on FileMaker if something doesn't work. :-)

Thanks Bcooney. That did the trick (although it took a couple hours to figure out exactly what to do--my screens never quite matched the expectations in the directions). But the good news is: the file can be transferred now. Thanks again.
