About This Book

FileMaker Pro comes with a printed manual, and an impressive online help system. These are actually pretty helpful resources…if you’re a programmer, that is, or if you’ve been working with FileMaker for a while. Between the manual and the help file, you can figure out how FileMaker works. But you’ll have to jump back and forth between page and screen to get the complete picture. And neither source does a great job of letting you know which features apply to the problem you’re trying to solve.

This book is designed to serve as the FileMaker Pro manual, the book that should have been in the box. It explores each feature in depth, offers shortcuts and workarounds, and explains the ramifications of options that the manual doesn’t even mention. Plus, it lets you know which features are really useful and which ones you should worry about only in very limited circumstances. Try putting sticky tabs in your help file or marking the good parts with a highlighter!
