Must Shared Files be Duplicated, in FM7 ?

We currently have a FMP solution where a single table is accessed by three different FMP "applications".

One application allows User A to add new records.

Another application allows User B to modify and close the records.

The third application allows User C to search the data.

User A <> User B <> User C

If we migrate to FMP7, will we be forced to combine all these applications that are using the same related table, into a single FMP7 file?

Version: v5.x

Platform: Mac OS X Jaguar

Hi zincb,

The answer is no. In FileMaker v7, you have to option to continue to operate files separately (with relationships connecting them), to rebuild within a single file sctructure, or any combination of the two.

The default position you will be in when you first migrate the files to the .fp7 format is that the existing structure will be preserved. It will only be if you modify the converted files to conform to a different structural model, that the file and table structure will change.
