Just a quick question. In one of my database files I have a pref. layout with some global fields. Basically a place to keep the company name, address, logo, ect that is then used throughout the rest of the database.

To make changes to these fields from the server...not a problem. But of course if I make changes to these globals via the hosts button on a client machine...the changes dont actually take permant. Is there a way around this?

Global fields are global to all records in a database on a per user per session basis. The only way to change the default state of the globals is to be the onbly user of the file in an exclusive mode. The normal way to do this is to take the file offline, open it and make the changes. Then put is back on the server.

Alternately you could have a single record database where your Prefs get stored in actual fields. This makes updating much easier.
