  1. Thank you, and sorry for my late reply, I am not receiving notifications, and have to fix this as well! I have downloaded the file, but how can I edit it in order to see how it is built? I cannot see any layout feature if it remains in user mode. Regards

Unfortunately it shows onl
  6. I have tried to customize this too. When I go into the contacts layout module, I try to add fields (which of course I added in the table before), and here comes the problem. The fields are blue and named ("powerful solutions", "customize buttons" ....) and I can't modify them. How could I do that? thanks
  7. This too is very helpful, because it allows me to understand the way the DB is built. The FM productivity tool is very complex and thus far more complicated to understand. Thank you very much Regards
  8. thank you very much for the link, I have downloaded it and I am now customizing to my needs. I was short on time and could not dedicate proper attention to searching previous posts, my apologies.
  9. Hi everybody, this is my first post here as I have just recently landed on FileMaker. I am trying to develop a simple program that my mother will have to use for her job. Basically she will have to input several fields in tables and then she should be able to use those data to: -track orders -generate invoices I have some knowledge with MS Access but I am looking into FM as I am using a Mac and she is using a PC, plus I would like to make somehting graphically more evolved than Access. The structure: Table 1: client contacts (name, address, email...) Table 2: clie
