FileMaker Pro is an easy-to-use database management tool with powerful applications for both professional and personal tasks. From contacts and documents to inventory management and invoicing, FileMaker Pro makes it easy to share and manage data with an entire team. In addition to business project and file management, FileMaker Pro can also help manage personal assets, photography, and other creative files.
This guide will explain the basic principles behind FileMaker, including the fundamental differences between a spreadsheet and database. We’ll provide step-by-step instructions for how users can ask and solve problems, view the same data in several different ways, link related data (via a relational table or database) and share data over the Internet (via a web database). Most importantly, we’ll let you know which features are important – and which you can worry about at a later date.
This guide will also cover how to use iPhone / iPad versions of FileMaker.
