Is it possible to come to a point where you've reached the limits of filemaker and you realize that its just easier to code the program from scratch. I am trying to build a database for a game I play. There are so many automated checks and calculations that Filemaker is acting buggy. Totals and Averages aren't adding up write.

...its just easier to code the program from scratch.

This is how my databases usually start, with a new file. What are you doing?

It's unlikely you've hit the limits of FileMaker, but if you were looking for help with your problems, we'll need a bit more info.

I would not say that you will find many problems or limitations of the Filemaker calculation engine. Most likely it is a user/developer error or a rounding error. I have often found that people tend to think that it has to be more complicated than it really is and add alot of problems simply on that basis.

If you could be more specific as to what the problem that you are seeing and what you are expecting the result to be we could be of more help.
