FileMaker Pro 10: Intermediate Tutorial


FileMaker Pro is powerful enough to handle most database jobs yet easy enough to create simple solutions in minutes. This practical "how to" course by FileMaker expert John Mark Osborne starts from intermediate level and uses a single invoicing example to demonstrate FileMaker Pro 7, 8, 8.5, 9 and 10 features and techniques including interface design, relational database design, relationship operators, multiple predicates, table occurrences, portal filters, security, scripts, calculations, FileMaker Pro Advanced, multi-user solutions, record locking, multi-keys, deleting duplicate records and new FileMaker Pro 10 features. Examples of the invoice file are provided at every stage of the creation process so the user can easily review one section without starting from the beginning.
