Q&A

Q1:What is the best way of working with FileMaker—toolbars, commands, or something else?
A1: The best way is whatever is comfortable for you. You can use the toolbars, commands, and scripts that you or a developer write, or buttons placed on layouts. You can vary your choice of method depending on the data involved, the database, and your mood. FileMaker and database developers give you a choice.
Q2:Why is some data reformatted?
A2: Instead of forcing you to enter data in a specific format (day-month-year, for example), FileMaker provides options that let you enter data in a convenient way and then have it formatted automatically. This makes for more attractive reports and makes it easier to search for data. (Note that in entering dates, if you omit the year, FileMaker assumes the current year.
