Two Databases

P: n/a
I have two databases that I have been able to combine the two backends into
one and still have two different front ends. One front end is for creating
appointments and the other is for entering the quote information.

I tried to combine both front ends into one, but this seems to create many
headaches with the coding, some code works while others don't. Can't seem to
find out why.

I am curious if there is a way that you can easily switch between two
database frontends. I tried to us the runapp code, but this opens up a new
instance everytime the button is clicked.

If anyone has any ideas, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
Stephen

In the long run, my guess is that you're probably better off figuring out
your conflicts and resolving them, but if you really want to go the
2-frontend route, you might want to take a look at SOON (Shut Old, Open New)
