Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

FileMaker Pro 6.0 makes individual and small-group data management engaging and almost fun. Installation and setup are both surprisingly quick and easy, and the templates and wizards will have most users frolicking with their new or imported databases in just a couple of hours. The interface and design tools are comfortable for Windows users of all levels of experience. It's not designed for the lowest common denominator, though--advanced users will find Filemaker Pro's scripting language for queries and other tasks handy, if not all-powerful.

Data entry couldn't be easier. For some formats, it's as simple as dragging and dropping folder contents, so multimedia management, for example, becomes almost trivial. Filemaker's data manipulation tools are more powerful than before, which means that the administrator would do well to limit users or train them carefully. Searches, the meat of the package, are simple enough for beginners but offer enough complexity to keep power users happy. One new time-saving search feature is the extend/constrain function: If a search returns too few or too many results, it takes just one step to expand or contract.

The Web-style integration has taken a huge step forward since version 5.5; the look and feel of the desktop is almost seamlessly translated onto intranet use. However, those with more than 10 potential intranet users should pick up the Unlimited version. Filemaker can import and export XML, so data can be manipulated and then easily shared with non-users.

While there might be more powerful data management packages available, for a wide range of uses and users, Filemaker Pro 6.0 is tough to beat. --Rob Lightner, Amazon.com

By A Customer
This programme I have used while doing a GNVQ course and I found it very easy to use and its great at searhing for what you want and adding information to the database It automatically saves so you lose no work and it returns from any other setting to the start of full database with full information even after days of not using it if you create any mistakes it is perfect a top grade piece of software I'd recommend it to anyone.
