Filemaker "Open" or "Open without Sharing"

I would like ot get rid of the "Open" or "Open without Sharing" box in Filemaker and just have it default to "Open" - thus opening the file and sharing it automatically. Is there a way to do this?

not clear to me...
wanna remove the option from menu? or have it opened upon filemaker startup?
both can be done.
if you have the adv version, you can make a custom menu and make it standard for a given file.
if you want a given file to open, double click on it; if hosted on a server, create a URL to access to it like
fmnet://server_ip/file
as far as sharing is concerned, if it is on, it will remain "on" for further use.

The first person to open it for the day receives that box that asks if it should "Open" , "Open without Sharing" or "Cancel".  It is not part of a menu. I just want it to default to "Open" and not ask the user.

that's probably because it is shared but stored on a server volume, and therefore you get a filemaker warning about performance, and it prompts to open for single user... I am afraid there is no workaround apart from having a filemaker copy on server to simulate the server, and have it permanently open there.

If I have Filemaker server, would this message dissapear?

yes,
since v9, you can open using a simple URL or shorcut like fmnet://myserver/myfile.
I am still wondering if you would get the msg if the file was open by a script from a another (dummy) file, which would only do the "open" action...
