Chapter 1. About FileMaker Pro 5.0

Welcome to the Visual QuickPro Guide to FileMaker Pro 5.

FileMaker is hands-down the simplest database program to pick up and use. You already know this, because you've benefited from its clarity and accessibility. You know and are comfortable with the FileMaker interface and its terminology (like fields, requests, lookups, and relationships). You can input records at lightning speed. You don't need the Help file to create and edit new fields and layouts, or to run effective finds and sorts. But if any of the above sounds like a foreign language to you, put this book down and pick up FileMaker Pro 5 for Windows and Macintosh: Visual QuickStart Guide, by Nolan Hester, which will give you a solid grounding in the basic features and capabilities of FileMaker 5.

Now that you've been creating useful FileMaker projects, you've reached the point where you've realized that you don't know everything you'd like to know about FileMaker, and database development in general. You could be doing more, and maybe doing it better. We hope this book helps you to break through to the next level of FileMaker mastery. It offers tips, techniques, and examples of little-known features to help you to perform remarkably sophisticated database tasks.
