Limit on number of opened databases

Recommended Posts

There must be a limit on the number of databases that can be opened at the same time. Just in case there is a limit can I have a large database and based upon the user id to subset the data?

How do I subset a database? Can you provide a simple example?

The limit is 50 per copy of FMP Unlimited. I just saw a FMP database with over 100,000 records running at an Education Service Unit in Omaha. I don't know about creating a subset tho.

RE: How do I subset a database? Can you provide a simple example?

U can relate databases based on a value in a field on a one (record) to one (record) or one (record) to many (records) basis. (in your case it would be a one to one relationship based on a unique field)

Filemaker works a little differently to Access et al in this respect although the same general rules apply when relating data.

For more info on doing this correctly you can refer to the filemaker web site and the manual that comes with FMPro - also available from the FMPro web site

The Ultimate FAQ says:

"Up to 50 files can be published through FileMaker Pro Unlimited, in either case."

My question is:

If my database or databases are set up as "relational," does this mean that I can have up to 50 files/tables running under a single Unlimited license?

Thanks in advance.

      I have published my database using CDML pages and I want each web address field to act as a link witch goes directly to the address contained in the field. Example of the HTML code on the search results page:
      [FMP-FIELD: email] *how can I link this field to act as "mailto://(value in the field)"

      [FMP-FIELD:web-address] *how can I link this to act as "http://(value in the field)"
      Any help will be highly appreciated the dead line for these pages were yesterday and I need to get these features online as soon as possible. Thanks...

      Dear all:
      I am facing the following problem: I am setting up a www-interface using CDML for the first time. I get the behavior I want, and everything works fine.
      But there's one big question: In the CDML reference, I cannot find any tags that allow authentication of users using the FM-database built-in access privileges.
      Any ideas?
