Quiz

1:Given that FileMaker can do data conversions at will, is it OK to use text fields for everything?
2:How do you create Yes/No radio buttons?
3:Where are summary fields stored?

Quiz Answers

A1: No, because layout formatting for numbers, dates, and times requires that the fields be declared as those field types.
A2: Create a value list with Yes and No and attach it to the radio buttons.
A3: If they are stored, they are stored in the database table just like other filelds. If they are not stored (either by your choice or because they contain related fields, summary fields, global values, or a reference to another unstored calculation), they are calculated each time they are used.
