About Filemaker Pro p. 6

  • A FileMaker layout can include as many or as few of the defined fields as you like. Think of a layout as simply one view into the database.

  • There is no requirement that a field be included in any of a database’s layouts. Some fields are intended only as a part of a calculation, for example.

  • The addition of simple scripts—often only a single step—can greatly enhance a database’s ease of use. For example, you can create one-step scripts to change to a particular layout, create a new record, delete the current record, or restore the database to a default sort order.

  • Any FileMaker database can also have a when opening or when closing script that automatically runs each time the database is opened or closed.
