"Save Copy of" remote file on my local computer - FileMaker

fmp 6.04, xp So I have my files hosted on another computer, across the room. On my computer, I made a script that opens up via hosts the database. I made a script on the remote to "Save a Copy" on my harddrive when I open the file from my computer. But it doesn't do it.

    Default "Save Copy of" remote file on my local computer

    So I have my files hosted on another computer, across the room. On my computer,
    I made a script that opens up via hosts the database. I made a script on the
    remote to "Save a Copy" on my harddrive when I open the file from my computer.
    But it doesn't do it.

    You cannot use "Save As.." on a hosted file - think about the security
    implications for a start...

    Export will get the data, but not everything else.

    Only reliable methid is to close the file on the host computer,
    and transfer it to the required machine, then open it. Although
    I very rarely have to do this, as I have the development copies
    on my machine and only transfer them to the server when they're ready
    to be used.

    And why do you need a copy when you open it from the server
    anyway? I loathe having lots of copies running around as
    inevitably I end up using the wrong one ;-)

    It was a script that I wanted to run from my computer, which no one else has
    access to, so they can't run the script.

    But they're saved as "----- Copy" so I know not to open it. It was just for
    backup. I don't have FMP Server, just FMP6/U/5.5 on my machines.

    Export works well enough, as I manually make copies to my USB Key when I mess
    with layouts and fields. I just really needed the data.

    Thanks anyway.
