    If you have log fields for creation and modification dates and times and you are considering converting your solution to FileMaker Pro 7 you should prepare your FileMaker Pro 6 databases in advance to use the new TimeStamp feature. The new TimeStamp feature eliminates half the fields you would normally use by combining the date and the time into one field. Thus, for most solutions that log creation and modification information you will be able to eliminate two fields from every table.
