That's really not much of an answer, and that is one thing that continues to
strike me about Rev database access discussions. They seem quite shallow and
All the multi-user record locking etc is built into Filemaker, it is robust
and easy to use. Even so, there is a long range of subtle issues that come
up in developer conversations all the time. Some are Filemaker specific,
some are generic to handling and updating datasets.
I know that you're not claiming that your responses are the definitive
answer on Rev multi-user database access. But what IS the source for that
Rev may be great for multi-user database access. And perhaps many people may
have these issues worked out.
But the answers I've seen so far are sort of like asking how do I win the
Indy 500? Oh, you just get in and turn the key.
There is a LOT more to it than that.
