Girish,

 

www.filemaker.com has a wealth of documentation and the FileMaker help system is also a great place to start.

The more specific your questions the better we can respond.

Welcome to the world of FileMaker

Hello Girish,

 

As you've said you're "very new" to FileMaker, the resource I'd recommend starting out with is the "FileMaker Training Series." It's free and is available at FileMaker's website. Your intuition is correct that you need to first have a grasp of the overall architecture, as well as some key FileMaker jargon, before you can start asking those more specific questions that folks like Kris, Wim, and many others around here will be ready to answer, when that time comes.

 

hth,

 

Mark

I'll give my two cents.  Maybe one.  I started with FM 3-4 months ago.  I think the one big "thing" that surprised me -- and I'm not a database guy, FWIW -- is that user interface layouts and data are intertwined in some respect.  That is, to create a new record in a given table in a script for example, you have to go to that layout to create the record.

I'm sorry. I have to comment.

 

No, you don't. In fact, it would have been been much better if you hadn't. I can see no reason for your criticizing the response you quoted - and even if there were one, that's most certainly not the way to express it.
