Part: II Modifying Templates and Databases > Validating and Auto-Entering Data

Hour 6. Validating and Auto-Entering Data

What You'll Learn in This Hour:

  • About Validation— FileMaker can edit data as it's entered.

  • Setting Auto-Entry Options— You can let FileMaker automatically insert data, the results of calculations, information such as the current date or time, as well as unique serial numbers.

  • Setting Validation Options— You can control the strictness with which these edits are applied.

  • Replacing Field Values— This section explains how to do wholesale replacement of data.

Part I, “Getting Started with FileMaker—Using the Templates,” provided an introduction to FileMaker. In Part II, “Modifying Templates and Databases,” you'll see how you can build on the FileMaker templates to make customized solutions for yourself. Part III, “Creating FileMaker Solutions,” will go further, showing you how to start from scratch to design and implement your own database solutions.
