Chapter 17. Using FileMaker 5.5's New Features

Chapter 17. Using FileMaker 5.5's New Features

Although the most extensive changes in FileMaker 5.5 are found in the features that debuted in version 5.0 (like Instant Web Publishing), there are several changes in more established areas as well. Most are little gems that make everyday tasks easier, like manipulating and validating data, combining files and creating user interfaces. With a few new tweaks, scripting has become easier to do and to document as well.

Many of 5.5's new features involve security issues. Those of us who share our databases, either on the Internet or in a business environment, know how critical data security can be. From contact information to sales quotas, from privacy to competitive edge, knowledge is power. FileMaker's new security features make it easier to keep control of information, and to fine-tune exactly how much each user can see, modify, and print. In this chapter, we introduce you to some of the ways you can productively use these new security options, as well as the other 5.5 additions to interface, scripting, fields and records.
