this is the first of a series of blogs I intend to write to share my ah ah! moments in my FileMaker apprenticeship. I hope that sharing these Epiphanies that led to a growth spur of my skills can be useful to other novices. I am also hoping that if I say stuff that isn't accurate, the old sailors will chime in so that I can correct my assumptions and keep reliable the information I communicate.
I will add material as it comes up to me. I will also use the following codes:
Basic; I should have known or need this bit of knowlege to move forward
Tricky; I needed to know but it is a weird or not evident mechanism, kink or principle
Sneaky; my personal workaround or way to deal with a problem
