Essential FileMaker facts--without a billion pages of hype
If you just want to get to work, this is the FileMaker book for you. It's task oriented with hundreds of screen shots and loads of real-world tips presented in a straightforward manner. Aimed at the beginner and intermediate user, it walks you through how to publish what FM calls "instant" databases for the Web--without writing HTML code. It also will get you started on creating a customized Web database using FM's CDML tags. There's plenty of clear help on using templates and scripts to speed and simplify your database design. The book's cross-platform format helps Mac _and_ Windows users learn how to seamlessly share files across platforms, networks and the Internet. And it has what so many computer books lack--a really good index where you can find page refs for anything you might need (even if you don't know FM jargon) and a complete set of appendices for keyboard shortcuts, scripting commands, and formula functions. If you're an expert user! ! or a database pro, check out Maria Langer's book (Database Publishing on the Web). For everyone else, this Visual QuickStart is a painless way to get going.
