The FileMaker Manual for NovicesThe FileMaker Manual for Novices

by Richard Carlton and Morgan Vinshire

FileMaker is an awesome tool for solving business or organizational problems for millions of users weekly! However, FileMaker won’t solve your business problems by itself.

There are already books available on FileMaker Pro™, and even more resources available on the web and in workshops, classes, etc. But these sources consist almost entirely of instruction on how to use FileMaker’s tools, and not how to properly design a custom app. The single most glaring omission for the newcomer is a basic list of do’s, don’ts and other advice to help you get started on the right foot. This book will help prevent you from making significant design errors that could cause you trouble down the road.

FileMaker 14 the missing manual

FileMaker Pro 14: The Missing Manual (Missing Manuals)

by Susan Prosser, Stuart Gripman

(Paperback – May 23, 2015)

You don’t need a technical background to build powerful databases with FileMaker Pro 14.

This crystal-clear guide covers all new FileMaker Pro 14 features, such as its improved layout tools and enhanced mobile support.

Whether you’re running a business, printing a catalog, or planning a wedding, you’ll learn how to customize your database to run on a PC, Mac, Web browser, or iOS device.

FileMaker Pro 14 is a single software package that serves two fundamentally different types of people: users and developers.

Users are the folks who need a database to help them organize and manage the data they work with in order to do their jobs. Developers create the databases that users use.

No matter which category you’re in (and lots of people fall into both categories, sometimes popping back and forth dozens of times a day), you’ll find that FileMaker doesn’t play favorites.

The features you need for both roles are equally accessible.
