Much of the material here is borrowed from elsewhere – I’ve just tried to gather in one place some notes about Filemaker techniques that have confused or interested me. It’s mainly for my own reference, but if it’s of interest to you, then that’s a bonus. Some of the techniques described here are of my own creation, but most are adapted from the work of others. I’ve tried to credit the originators – if I’ve used something of yours without crediting you, please let me know.
Whilst I hope that it may be useful to you, I accept no responsibility if any of these techniques fail to work for you, cause your server to crash and burn, or otherwise disrupt your peaceful life…
I spend most of my Filemaker time on a system called “Focus”, which I’ve created for Barton Hill Settlement in Bristol, UK. It records details of service users, activities, room bookings, etc.
