Trouble with Relationships and Files


Recommended Posts

I am working on a new Data base the has relationships with other files and when I close the data base and reopen it it can't find the files that its looking for. I have tried to edit the "Define File References" to fix it bet the problem still continues. Also so you know I am using "Relative path" Format.


The way I have it set up right now as I am working on it is I have a folder on the Desk top in that folder I have 3 Files "master files" that have relationships to each other and have a sub folder that has relationships to the "master Files"


When I Open the file in the sub folder I get the message that one of my master files could not be opened. This hapens with all of the relationships I have set up on this file.


In Edit File Reference I have it set a

File Path "file:FileMaker/New IA Jobs/Job Book.fp7"


I receive the message "Job Book.fp7 could not be opened"


I then I manually open the file and it continues


is there a way to fix this? I will soon be putting these files on a server and multiple platform computers will be using the solution.


thank you for help or suggestions you might have.

Your file path is not correct.


In the files within the subfolder, you would define the file references to the main files like:


file:../Job Book.fp7
