First questions -- possibly using Filemaker Pro


I've developed several feature rich Access databases, utilizing relationships, cascading updates/deletes, etc.  A friend owns a small business (doesn't like Access), and asked me if I could develop a database for them with Filemaker Pro.


He downloaded the trial version and found that the Invoices, Document and Contact  templates (Starter Solutions) would give them most of what they need in order to get up and running quickly.


Is linking these templates together into one database application straighforward in Filemaker, in order to acces a customer (Contact), view all Invoices, and access their related Documents/files? 


I'm wondering what sort of learning curve to expect for Filemaker Pro for someone who is proficient with Access development.
