Relationships on multiple servers

Recommended Posts

I just posted a qustion, but cannot find it, I'm afraid I did something wrong, so I'm asking it again....

We have databases on two systems, both are running under OS10, one is FMUnlimited, another is FMServer. On those systems we have related databases.. Relationships FMU->FMS work fine, hovewer when we opn database on FMS it cannot find the related files from FMU and we have to choose them manually.

What can be wrong here?

The files should be opened *first* in FM Server. This is their home. They can then be opedded as guests by FMU.

...I didn't clearly understand you

You see, we have files on FMS that are related to files on FMU

Now, what we want is that when we open a file on FMS it connects automatically to all related files on FMU...however it says that files cannot be found, and we have to choose those files manually for every relationship

But the same files on FMU have no problem connecting to files on FMS... It works only one way.

all databases on both servers are open

Sorry if I'm not clear or if I'm not understanding something

Thank you

Put all databases to FM server.

FMU can open all databases from FM server.

What you are doing is against FMS concept and rules.

      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?
