Refeashing SQL data in FileMaker Shadow Tables

Recommended Posts

I have a MYSQL server and FileMaker interface. As an example, if you have a contacts table, User A is looking at a list of contacts and user B creates a new contact. That new contact will not appear in users A contact list with out running a script the refreshes the SQL data. Is there away around this. I have already considered triggers.

FM stores around 50 records in its local cache. In order to see changes made by another user, you will need to force FM to refresh its cache. The one sure way to do that is to do a "Perform Find", usually with a script. You might be able to tie that in with a trigger, if it makes sense for your solution.
