 Filemaker 3 server, SDK, network db problem

Paul,
        Here is a solution one of my users came up with which opens the DB
without the end user needing to know anything about the DB location.
        What you do is: go to a machine other than the server. Create a new FMP
file called "Open Database". This file neeeds no fields, just a script.
The script has an Open step for which you use the Open..Hosts..Specify
Host.. method to find the database. The next script step is to Close the
"Open Database" itself. That is the script, just two steps. Now go into
the Edit... Preferences... Document and set the When Opening option to
Perform the script you just created.
        Distribute this file to everyone. By opening the file, which can be on
their desktop, the real DB gets opened.

        Nice, huh?
        Have fun, Mark
