one database/ 2 main switchboards

P: n/a
I know that switchboards aren't loved in here, but I have a question
about them. I have one database that runs in two locations. Can I make
two main switchboards (one for each location) that goes to the same
database? I am extremely new at this, so please be gentle in your
explanation. Thanks for your time.

AFAIK you can only have one switchboard in a database.
You could make a switchboard, and rename the form and table, and create another one indeed.

Then you could distribute the app with the proper switchboardform and table activated.
Or you could do some renaming at startup with your switchboardform and table maybe...

I am one of those that don't like switchboards.
I guess I would use just a startupform and switch code and options in a mainform as desired.
