    Description

    Developers have always been able to comment scripts, calculations, and fields. However, commenting calculations required that you to knew how to use the Left function trick and commenting fields required that you knew the trick to leave the validation error message text without actually validating the field contents. FileMaker Pro 7 finally does away with these tricks by enabling robust commenting capabilities.
