    FileMaker Pro 7 now allows the use of the Lookup Next (Lower and Higher) function in calculations and scripts. One of the best uses for the Lookup Next function is calculating shipping prices for the USPS, UPS, or FedEx. Using this function eliminates the need to create a record for every possible weight, which in the case of the USPS saves you from managing updates for at least 315 parcel services records.
