We are using FileMaker Server 5.5 in conjuction with FileMaker 5.5 clients. To store specific user- and location data we had the idea of storing a local database. However, when we try to open this database the server cannot find it and keeps looking for a database file with that name on the server. Does any1 has an idea if there's a way to work around this ?

Thank you very much !

Filemaker only bothers to look in the "starting" directory of the local disk before searching the network.

It works if you specifically start FMP, then navigate to open to local file - but OAMs suggestion is much better, and one I have implemented in my system with PIN numbers linked to staff records.
