Filemaker pro may have been the wrong product for me??? Printing book?
Help. I'm pretty much a newbie. I used FP 9 (on windows 7) to enter data on a dog event (names, titles, owners, picture, pedigree, health, etc). I have to produce a book from this data, with each page listing the info for each dog. So, I need to create a layout, then get that layout into a format suitable for digital printing, in a spiral bound book. And the quality has to be high enough for photos. Print companies online say they wil print using pdf's, others involved are telling me I have to use MS publisher, some talk about Adobe in-design.
I used FP because of the extreme ease in data entry (used it years ago on a Mac). I have several tables containing different data. But what is the best way to get my data into a printable form? Wil a pdf be good enough, or do I have to export to a different format and use a different program to layout? Is there a program that will pull the data straight from FP? I spent all afternoon researching, then decided to ask the experts. Help! TIA!!
