Hi John

I just discovered a problem with the Library. As I am hosting fmSpark on a server, it will lose all the information added in the library after shut down as they are global fields.

As I am integrating into an existing running solution, I have to have the files on the server.

Would everything else still work, if I change all fields in the appLibrary table to normal fields?

At the moment I could still take out the file, add the library bit and put it back, but when I am gone life, it will be definitely an issue.

Thanking you in advance

Kind regards

Hi Regine,

Unfortunately, you have to edit the Library (the fmSpark interface and button names) off the server while the file is single user. You can't just make these regular fields, unfortunately that won't work.

I hope you only have to change the library stuff once so doing it off the server won't be too bad.
