I've been noticing this for some considerable time and I'd love to get to the bottom of why. Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated. https://www.screencast.com/t/7CWCfpqfeP
  2. Since we can see values from a related table why would we ever need to enter those values into the related table itself, i.e., entering a company name (either via a Lookup (not recommended) or by Insert Calculated Result in Field Options).

  6. In Part 1, we discussed all of the tools within FileMaker itself. In Part 2, we discuss many of the external tools that are available to all developers to help their efforts. It's a fascinating discussion and we almost guarantee that you'll discover new tools that may well become essential to you and your work. https://firesidefilemaker.podbean.com/e/developer-tools-part-2/ P.S. Today we hit a huge milestone by surpassing 20,000 downloads. We are immensely grateful to all of our listeners.
  7. In this two part podcast, John Mark & I, are once again joined by Marc Larochelle (CEO of Productive Computing) for a discussion about the tools that are available to FileMaker developers at all levels. This part mostly covers the internal tools and options that are available inside of FileMaker and in Part 2, we'll be discussing some of the external (commercially available) tools that could enhance your development efforts. We hope you find the discussion interesting and enjoyable. Part 2 will be released on May 20, 2020 https://firesidefilemaker.podbean.com/e/developer-tools/
  8. Nothing to do with FileMaker but I decided to write a letter to the Coronavirus and tell it what I thought of it. I'm hoping to get a reply
  9. This episode is a continuation of our examination of the 179 script steps in FileMaker 18. We talk about the ones you should know intimately, the ones that you need to be aware of and use occasionally and finally the ones that you should never, under any circumstances use. As always, we'd love to hear your comments so please email us at info@firesidefilemaker.com https://firesidefilemaker.podbean.com/e/the-good-the-bad-and-the-ugly-part-2-1587545578/
