FileMaker Pro combines powerful information management and surprising ease of use. It handles all business data-management needs, including job tracking, asset management, inventory, customer information, and payroll, over the company intranet, local area networks (LANs), or even wired or wireless handhelds.
This version of FileMaker Pro has many enhancements based on input from users, IT management, and third-party developers. It can now query databases based on field, and features a new Execute SQL script step, as well as a revamping of the Instant Web Publishing that allows users to publish in the same format as their FileMaker Pro files, without writing any code.
The Web Companion translates a number of multistep scripts, providing a high degree of fidelity between PC-hosted FileMaker Pro databases and those published on the Web. You can also import specific-named ranges of Microsoft Excel data, a useful feature if there is more than one row of description or label data above the actual datasheet data to be imported. With a new multithreaded, built-in HTTP server, the processing capability of FileMaker Pro delivers faster response times for all requests including static data and image displays. Web Companion now supports buttons in headers and footers, sorting by clicking column headers and uniform row heights.
This version will enable data access control to individual records: users can specify comprehensive calculation formulae to restrict browsing, editing, or deleting records, based on the user's password. A new interface has been introduced so that FileMaker Server guests can now remain connected even if they have been idle. This prevents users from being disconnected from a file that is being hosted on the Internet by a client that is being used as a Web server.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I have been using it for years to organize all my contacts. Works fine for me.
Filemaker Pro is a flexible and useful program for several reasons. Most Database Programs over the years have diminished in their usefulness. I used to use ACT4.0 and ACT2000 but its lack of enhancements began to make it obsolete or less useful for me. I got the recommendation of a friend who is a MACINTOSH owner and he is really high on Filemaker for the MAC. So I purchased Filemaker Pro for my Windows 98 PC. I found right off that it contained a large number of useful business templates from which to select. I used the template I needed which ultimately replaced my ACT database--I am currently importing a series of contact lists from my Filemaker system without problems. Its a fine product and works on both the MAC (including OS version X) and all versions of the Microsoft Windows Operating Systems such a Win98, ME, 2000, XP. Its easy to share data between MAC's and PC's.
