    Layout data entry form from training



      Layout data entry form from training


      I am new to FileMaker Pro 10.  I have been going through the training and the training module (the one you are given when you first install the Trial) uses a data entry form that I have tried to find or replicate.  It is a "tabbed" form with a grey background and white entry fields.  Isn't this a standard form or does FileMaker design their training materials from scratch?  I can't find the form anywhere.

             I haven't run that particular video, but what you describe is a fairly standard use of the tab control. You can research that feature in filemaker help. You can also select a template from the quick start to create a new database with ready made layouts--many of which have this feature. You can likely open one of these up and copy and paste features into your databse. Just be aware that if your database has different table and field names, you'll have to redo the fields so that they point at field in your tables before they will work correctly.

            I am new to this forum and am hoping to please get some guidance.


            I have been working in arts and more recently management and have realised the greatness and professional uses of filemaker and have decided that i want to learn how to use it. I have become fairly proficient at Bento but now need the power of filemaker Pro and if possible even reach the level of developer if that were possible as i like the idea of doing this for a living if given the chance.


            I would like to know ways for me to learn to use it. I have already looked at the videos at Linda.com of filemaker essential videos but they seem to move too fast for me and also skip through too many things they assume the user already knows and I definitely need basics! Are there good basic videos for filemaker 11 or 10 as well as any relatively inexpensive classes that i could enroll in the London area (uk).


            Thank you very much.
