The copy of the database I have on my desktop is about 2 years old.
I need a copy that will have all changes since the copy was made.

You have to copy the FileMakerPro database from its original location to your desktop again. The file extension is .fp7 and the name is same as the one on your desktop probably.

Of course, it is possible you have no access to the live .fp7 file because it is placed on the server somewhere around... In such case you have to ask the network administrator which can help to find the file for you.

You should also be able to export FileMaker data: http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/6167/~/exporting-data-from-filemaker-pro
