Title

layout for welcome screen

Post

I am very new to Filemaker Pro. So please pardon me if the question is trivial. 

 

I want to make a welcome screen for a database. I want to have buttons on this screen that link to layouts for tables within the database. It will not display any data. When I try to create a layout, I am required to select a table, in the "Show Records from" drop down. Is it not possible to have a layout independent of any tables?

 

Is there any other way to implement this welcome screen other than using layouts? 

 

I tried finding an answer by searching the web, but couldn't get one .. maybe I did not use the right keywords. 

 

I am using Filemaker Pro 10.
