New to Filemaker - Starting from Scratch-Relationship Help
Hello Filemaker Community,
I am very new to Filemaker and have been set with the task of creating a database for a museum. I have been through the videos on Lynda.com and still need some additional assistance. I want to set this up properly and am having trouble knowing how to set up the relationships, that way they communicate to each other in the correct manner. I am having a difficult time deciding what is the parent table and child etc. This database will contain a lot of information on the specimens and so forth.
So far I have created a table known as Specimens-Entry. It contains fields such as specimen name, accession number, department, gallery relationship and so forth. I also have a table for graphics. My main concern is knowing what is the parent and what is the child. Whether that applies to this situation. Also, I am very new to forums, so please forgive me. Any help or guidance is welcome.
