Q&A

Q1:Why aren't there more calculations in the templates?
A1: As you saw in this hour, you can customize templates with calculations that match the way you use a specific template. The basic templates are jumping-off places for such customization.
Q2:Do calculations slow down FileMaker?
A2: Calculations that are stored cost you only when they are calculated. Thereafter, they are retrieved like any other data field. Calculations that are unstored need to be recalculated each time they are accessed. If a calculation involves data located across a network, there may be a noticeable delay in accessing it and then performing the calculation. The delay is not so much in the calculation, but in the data access across the network.
