Hello

I have a FM Catalog on my IBook containing 3000 pictures (JPG are not embedded - FM only stores the file path and name in the catalogue) . The size of the Data Base is 800 MBytes (meaning it doesn't fit on a single CD).

I would like to export that Data Base to my other MAC. Having simply copied one by one the files of the FM folder Data Base and of course the "pictures JPG objects" to the other Mac, FM doesn't retrieve the pictures on the target Mac . I suspect that the path names of pointers to the JPG files are not the same when moved... But for a smaller pictures data base of 300 MBytes, I had made a simple copy of the FM folder to a CD and the data Base worked on any Mac or PC. ...

May be I see a way to solve this : export a flat version a the Database, copy the exported "flat" elements to the other Mac and then import the database in a newly FM catalog created on the target Mac.

Can somebody validates that solution and explains me how to do it if it is possible...
