What Books/Training should I get?

I just got FMPro Unlimited, and have a huge learning curve ahead of me, but I really want to overcome and become proficient at it. I kind of have to.... Anyway, I am greatly daunted by the array of choices out there for training. I can see that the Scriptology book is the one to get for advanced training, but I will have to get some basics under my belt first. The question is WHERE? I need a very rudimentary tutorial in it, and though I loaded the tutorial that is on the program, I cannot find it anywhere for use. Is the book, "File Maker Pro for Dummies" any good.... it would seem to be dealing with basics, judging by the title. smile.gif

For basic FMP 5 coverage I recommend "FileMaker Pro 5 for Windows & Macintosh: Visual Quickstart Guide" by Nolan Hester. For Web publishing, "FileMaker Pro 4 and the World Wide Web" by Jesse Feiler is good. Although, it was written with FMP 4 in mind, nearly all of it applies to FMP 5 Pro and Unlimited. There are some new CDML tags for FMP 5 and Database Pros has a guide to these on their Web site in the Resources section <http://www.databasepros.com/resources.html>. Search for "New CDML Tags". There was also a very good article in the June 2000 issue of FileMaker Pro Advisor on using the Web Server Connector in Unlimited titled "Turbocharge Your Web Site."

Hope these give you some places to start.

      perhaps a really stupid problem:
      FileMaker unlimited is online. Web companion is running ok. everything works over a browser.
      But now we want to directly open the database with another filemaker via TCP/IP from another place via web.
      By clicking "hosts" an putting the IP-Adress, no connection can be built.
      A Ping works correctly.
      Is there a solution :
      Thank U

      Anyone else have this happen to them? Running an NT 4 sp6a box (256 MB RAMM, dual Celeron 400s) with FMPro 5 Unlimited, Web Connector to IIS SSL, Web Companion, and every week or so the FMPro quits on me. The app. has 9999k cache and is set to save every hour or when necessary. Any guesses at the problem? Don't think it is hardware ...

      I would like to install FM Pro 5 and FM pro unlimmited on 1 box. However, I want to only use the FM pro Unlimited for the web companant. Is this possible? If it isn't why wouldn't it, since only thing is being used is the FM Pro unlimited web componant.

      I'm trying to modify a web page. Everytime I look at it live, I'm seeing the old page. I've done the Misc. Script command to Flush Cache, but nothing happens.
      Is there something more radical I can do to flush the cache?

      I'm new to the group and have a quick question...
      I'm setting up an online database for teachers to enter homework assignments for their students.
      Is it possible to set up an input field that shows simple paragraph formatting (line breaks and paragraph returns)? I am only able to get a solid body of text. And could this be done while copying and pasting from a word document?
      Any suggestions?
