I run a solution on FM 9 Adv. for one project that is data entry and printing of form letters and envelopes.There are some simple printing scripts as part of it. A second person helps out and enters data through IWP sometimes. Now that business has increased and we need her to print too. The data is kept locally on my MacBook Pro and it can remain there. The second person is normally only there when I am and there is no particular need to store the data on a server. Given that, what version of FM do I need so she can enter data and print just as I do running the original data and solution located on my computer? Do I need server or can I just get for her FM9?

All she needs is a copy of FM client (not sure you can still buy FM9). Just use peer-to-peer sharing. However, remember that you'll need to close the file in order to backup.

FileMaker used to let you buy the older versions (if they still had them in their warehouse) at the current price of the new version.

Why not just buy the current version and they should be able to share with you anyway.

In any event, I would want to talk to FileMaker Sales and see what they can do.

You do not need server for this.
