Synopses & Reviews
Special Edition Using FileMaker Pro focuses on experienced developers who are looking for expert advice. The book provides you with in-depth techniques and helps you solve real-life problems. The book assumes a basic knowledge of FileMaker, but no knowledge of relational database theory or planning and designing a relational database. Topics covered include (all topics are taught with hands-on usage of FileMaker Pro): Understanding, planning and designing a relational database; maintaining the database; crafting a user interface; putting your database on the Web; and reporting.
Book News Annotation:
A FileMaker Pro trainer and another techie explain the benefits of going relational to intermediate to advanced-level developers considering Filemaker Pro 5, FileMaker Developer 5, FileMaker Pro 5 Unlimited, and FileMaker Server 5. With case studies, highlighted tips and caveats, they cover such topics as planning the database from a client's point of view, keeping good data from going bad, "webifying" the database, and scripting. The companion Windows- and Macintosh-compatible CD accesses text sample files and code.
