Within FileMaker Pro 8 (not Advanced), is it possible to determine if the user is connecting to a database via IWP versus sitting at the host computer? I want to deny some activities to users connecting via IWP.

Thanks in advance.

Hi

If you look in the FM templates folder that comes with the application you will find an example file called "Email Campaign Management.fp7", within this template there is a custom function called "testforIWP" which should act as a good example of how to test if a user is connecting via IWP.

Sorry

I just noticed your using version 7, in essence the Template uses the get(Applicationversion) to determine whether the client is using Filemaker or another application to connect to the database (i.e. a web browser). Hope this helps.
