I created a FileMaker Pro 5 database for organizing old family photos several years ago. I have printouts of the records and want to take up the project again. I know what information I want to include, but I don't understand how to duplicate one thing.
In the old program, I had a complete list of full names of people who appear in the collection of photos. Next to each name was a box. I put a X in the box when the person appeard in the record (i.e., in the individual photo).
Having this list of names and the X in the box certainly saved in data input problems.
How would I replicate this in FileMaker Pro 12?
Would it be possible to search on the names in the list and retrieve the records in which they appear (i.e., have the X in the box?
Is there a way to create a master list of names and then add a name "on demand" without having to input each name to a record?
Any help on this problem would be appreciated.
