    How to make a report for inventory



      How to make a report for inventory


      Hello, I'm new to filemaker pro and my company is really interested in purchasing this product.

      However, I'm having a problem concerning the inventory datebase. I would like to make an inventory report file that would calculate the number of items in each categories of my inventory. Also to include in the report, the value per each categories. I've been told there's a way to create such report. Does it have to do with the "relationship" function?

          Is this the Inventory starter solution?

          For which version of Filemaker ? (filemaker 12 has very different starter solutions from previous versions)

          You definitely have some reading up to do. A "relationship" is how you link data in one table to dat in another table. Strictly speaking, it's not a function.

          You may want to look up Summary fields in Filemaker Help as you'll likely need those for your report.
