Tools / Define fields - is grayed out in RDB

Hi,

 

I have created a databaseRDB which my wife uses to modify forms for me, she enjoys doing that sort of thing. We have found that on her copy databaseRDB under Tools the Define Fields is grayed out, so she can not go in and define fields for me. Is there a way this can be changed?

 

Regards,

Val

Val,

 

Since version 7 all design changes need to be made in the master database and then when you synchronise the changes are sent to the remote so this is normal for a remote to not have this capability. If you want to make changes do it in the Master database.
