‘We work in the live database.’ I hear that all the time and I don’t believe most people understand the ramifications.

In this video, FileMaker Certified Developer Chad Adams walks you through one tricky aspect of schema locking. When you have an auto-entry serial number within your FileMaker database it is all too easy to inadvertently precludes other users from creating new records.

Along the Chad answers several questions.

What is schema locking?
How can I use it to my benefit?
How can I use ‘On create’ and ‘On commit’ functions appropriately?
What should you cautious of?
Is it wise to work in a live system?

Thanks Chad!
