Hello All:

I was wondering if one of you FM genius' out there could answer a question for me. I travel frequently and I read a lot of travel magazines. I was wondering if there is a solution or template out there that would let me keep track of hotels, restaurants, bars whatever that I read about or visit.

For instance, let's say I read an article on the best bars in Chicago. I would like to be able to enter them into FM for example and then if I am on my way to visit Chicago I can go into FM and sort by:


or something like that. Is there a solution out there that will allow me to do this? I would appreciate any help you could provide me!


Version: v7.x

Platform: Mac OS X Panther

It would be a piece of cake to create a simple database like this. It wouldn't take a FileMaker genius. You could even put it on your PDA with FileMaker Mobile. In database terms, each location would be a "record" -- think of a card in a rolodex -- and each record contains "fields." A field is a piece of information such as city or name or source. You'd also want fields for date entered, date visited, notes, etc. You can search and sort on any field in FileMaker, so it really would be quite fast to put something together as described.
