I've just started using Filemaker Pro 7 and I'm wondering if it is possible to create invoices automaticly. I will try to clarify what I want. I'm selling products and with those products people can take advantage of my support. For this support I'm charging a fee of let's say 50 dollars a month.

Now I'm willing to generate a new invoice for this client every month automaticly, cause entering this manually will take to much time. Is this possible to script? If so is their anyone willing to point me out in the direction I should be looking for???

Thank you in advance,

First, you have to know which clients have taken advantage of this service and have a way to add and discontinue. Second, you have to decide if you are going to bill them all at the same time or whether each will have a unique monthly "aniversary" date. The actual creation of invoice will be a matter of finding the list of clients to be invoiced and looping through the list creating an invoice for each client. Exactly how you do this will depend upon how you store clients to be invoiced, invoices, invoice transactions and however many different support packages you plan to offer.
