3.0 out of 5 stars A bit disappointing 10 April 2000
By Angie E. Illhardt - Published on
Format: Paperback
I found this book a bit disappointing. Although it does provide some additional information on ODBC and SQL, it still felt like I was reading the Filemaker User's Guide all over again. There are a few scripting, calculation, and data transfer examples, but not enough. From the title "Automating Filemaker" I implied that the book would mostly focus on scripting and calculations. Not so. Too much of the book focuses on the basics of Filemaker (again, this info can be obtained from the User's Guide). A great overall book, but not for the serious developer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great reference book... 27 Feb. 2000
By Andy Knasinski - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book covers FileMaker Pro 4 & 5 and goes in-depth into scripting, calcuations and import/export. While it does not go into scripting like Scriptology, this book is a handy reference.
For those interested in ODBC, there are examples provided for importing/exporting between text files, ms access, ms word, and ms excel on Mac and Windows. It also has a great overvew of the differences between SQL and FileMaker terminology.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth it! Stay clear of it! 28 Oct. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I agree with the other reviewers on this one. This book stays very close to what's already in the user manual! I already know what's in the manual! How about some real World examples and such? How about disecting and describing complex and modular scripting. YAWN-a-ri-fic!

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappoinning 8 Sept. 2000
By Jeff W Sussenbach - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was rather disappointed with this book. It didn't seem to go into depth any more that the user guide that came with filemaker. There are few examples and the script steps are not pursued in depth like the title implies.

2.0 out of 5 stars a wast of papper 5 July 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book rambles on about all that file maker does, but he does tellyou how to do it, or to apply it. No examples set up some programs. I do think what is on the CD more usefull.
